As of a few days ago, my install of Akismet effectively stopped blocking spam. The result was over 800 spam comments within about a 48 hour period. I think I have the situation under control and that Akismet is working again, but if you see tons of spammy junk in the comment section the next day or so, that’d be why.

Also, I have to clear out the comments that got through by hand (the Akismet “recheck queue” functionality still isn’t working for some reason), so if I accidentally spam-can a legitimate comment, then you have my apologies.

Please either repost it, or leave a comment below letting me know.
