Akismet is the spam filtering plug-in developed by Automattic Company who had developed WordPress. Since most of the blogs are on WordPress and the default spam filtering option on them is Akismet, that’s why I am talking about that only. When you post a comment on a blog and if comment moderation is ON for that particular blog then your comment will not appear on that instant. Blog owner/admin will have to approve your comment and then only your comment will be visible to others. But what if your comment is moving into Spam folder?


Spam folder in wordpress blogs is maintained by Akismet and if Akismet feels that the comment just posted by you or others is not following the rules of ethical or human comment then it will move your comment into Spam folder. Akismet is designed in such a way that it should protect wordpress blog from spam bots or programs. But if it blocking your comments as well then you will feel helpless because you are putting lot many effort and time to post comments on different blogs and it is really frustrating that they are not appearing over there.
