WordPress Issues–Comments and Spam


I think I finally have comments/trackbacks working again. It seems that Akismet was being a lot more aggresive than it should be, even blocking trackbacks from this blog to itself. My apologies if I have blocked anyone’s comments; just in the past few days it looks like a few were blocked at the gate.

Anyone have any suggestions for dealing with spam comment while allowing legit comments through?
