I Can’t Comment On Other Blogs – Please Help!!!

This is just to let you know that I can’t post comments on any other blogs.  This has gone on for several days now and the issue still hasn’t been resolved. I can ‘like’ but not comment, and so I can’t interact with any of you at the moment, so sorry!!!

I really don’t know what to do about it!  I contacted Akismet as advised by WordPress but I haven’t heard back from them yet.

Meanwhile, I wonder has anybody else had this problem?  If so, would you mind letting me know what you did to resolve it?

I would very much appreciate some help with this.

Thank you very much!

      Yes, I am able to receive comments on my blog and also to reply back. It is only on other blogs that I can’t comment. Thank you so much for your help 🙂

      Thanks Sheila…me too, it’s really frustrating…I tried to comment on a couple of your posts twice each but nothing ever showed up!!!! I think its something to do with a spam problem. Well, hopefully it will get resolved quickly…:-)

      Hi Dylan, many thanks for replying to this post. Sure enough, your comment was in my spam folder, and so I have approved it as ‘not spam’ and here you are! I will comment on your blog so if you could kindly check your spam folder for my message and ‘release’ it I would be very grateful. This will help send the message to Akismet that my comments are not spam! Many thanks 🙂

        Hi Sherri, thanks for releasing my message from purgatory. I’ve just released your comment on my blog, so hopefully Akismet will start to get the message. You should also try to email them on support@akismet.com. They replied very quickly and although the problem isn’t yet resolvedI know now that they’re working on it. Good luck! Dylan

    Oh no! It’s so frustrating when technology goes rogue! My laptop keeps randomly crashing at the moment. I think it has gremlins! Hope you get your issue sorted soon. This reminds me, must back up my hard drive, I must back up my hard drive. And repeat!

      Hi Evie. Yes, it is incredibly frustrating. Isn’t modern technology marvellous…when it works! When it doesn’t, well, don’t even go there! Yes, back up, now, not tomorrow, but right now!!!! I did just the very same thing recently with my laptop. My daughter lost everything not that long ago when her laptop crashed, retrieval would have been possible for a mere £1,500. Thanks for the moral support and good luck with your laptop 🙂

    Sherri, I have emailed you because I doubt that this comment will post as I am having the same issues as you are. Very annoying, and I hope they fix it soon!

      Hey Jude! Well, sure enough, guess where your comment was? Yep…in my spam folder. I marked it as ‘not spam’, as above, and lo and behold, here you are! I will comment on your blog, so if you could do the same to release my comment I would be most grateful! Thanks so much for emailing me about this issue, it makes me feel a lot better knowing I’m not the only one having this pain-in-the-neck issue with spam but of course sorry you and others are also having the same problem. This explains why Akismet are taking so long to reply! Yes, let’s hope it gets fixed soon! Thanks so much for your help 🙂
