Spam getting past Akismet

Posted on February 4, 2007. Filed under: Miscellaneous, Wordpress |

I’m not using this blog at the moment (havent for over a year), but I don’t want to lose the subdomain so I’m not deleting it.

However, I am now getting a constant/steady stream of spam comments which is not being picked up by Akismet. I don’t quite understand why, because on my main blog, where I also have Akismet, its working just fine to stop similar posted comments. I’ve got them going to moderation because I wanted to approve any comment with 1 or more links, but this stuff should be getting stopped and its not.

In any case, all commenting on this blog is now closed. Ditto pingbacks

Persistent bold type :(

This is truly weird. The first entry on this site is bolded. I did not do it. I did not copy and paste the text from anywhere else. I simply overwrote the original first entry that every wordpress blog comes with. And I can NOT get rid of the bold type.

I have looked at the html, I have switched off the rtf editor so that I can see what’s happening and nothing makes any difference. Aside from deleting and starting over, I cannot see a solution.

Bug report time 😦
