So I’ve recently had some problems with my spam filtering. Rather than letting too many comments through, as has happened a couple times in the past, my combination of Akismet and CleanTalk started shit-canning every comment, spam content or not. After a little differential diagnosis, I figured out that CleanTalk was the culprit, so I’ve uninstalled the the plugin for it. If anyone thinks they’ve lost comments to the over-zealous spam detection engines, please let me know by post or email.
