Wordpress/Aksimet* has figured out my trick to getting around their spam filters (using a different browser to leave comments on Wordpress blogs), and has once again started blocking my comments.
(Dear Wordpress,A lot of bloggers have un-spammed my comments, but apparently not enough to make a difference to Wordpress spam filters. When I email bloggers to let them know Wordpress is eating my comments (regularly, in the manner of an annoying gnat), a lot of them can't find my comments in their spam folders anyway.
I am not a spammer. YOU, however, ARE an arsehole.
Apparently, I'm not the only person this has happened to. I did write Aksimet like that guy did and ask them to un-blacklist me, but I'm not sure they'll care enough to respond (even though I'M NOT THE ONE WHO DOESN'T WORK PROPERLY!).
Ahem. Sorry about that. Anyhoodles**, this was mostly a rant, but also an explanation for my absence in many of your comments sections. Alas, Wordpress/Aksimet seem committed to suppressing my brilliant wit.***
I still love you anyway, Internets. I'm just gonna have to love some of you through telepathy****.
*Some people get kind of annoyed by Blogger blogs with word verification or comment moderation. If you are one of these people, and you have a Wordpress blog, you are living in a glass house (etc.).
**My Firefox spell checker recognizes "anyhoodles" but not "bloggers." I hope I didn't break it...
***I will not throw myself under a bus over this, don't worry...
****Wow, that unintentionally sounded kinda dirty.
