Recently, my contest blog was flagged as spam by someone in Askimet. This gave me the problem that I could no longer leave comments on other blogs. So, my blog was blacklisted, blacklist, banned and flagged... as spam. :( First, I tried to leave myself comments and flagged them as not being spam. This did not work.
The SolutionSo, I contacted Askimet. You should note that they asked for a math question to prevent bots. They don't use their own system to be contacted. That's normal since you email is blacklisted thus you could not leave a message anyway. Choose the following option: I have a support or feature request Tell them about your blog and that you are even using Askimet on your WP blogs. The morning after, I got an email from Mark that it will be fix. Sure enough, I had to leave a comment a few hours later and it worked. Depending on their backlog, it could take a few days thus be patient.
