    Please tell me, what are you supposed to do when your site has been banned by akisment and you cannot comment on any wordpress blogs?

    1. You are not banned from all wordpress blogs, just those with spam protection. You can still comment on those which don't have akismet installed. Use the SB addon Blog Analyzer to identify such blogs.

    2. You can appeal to akismet, but what's stopping you getting banned another time? You should learn to vary your comments, use proxies which are not hammered (in built SB proxies are a no-no), vary your anchor text etc. Be more careful next time - spam smart!

    3. The main solution to this is a 301 redirect, either by means of

    a) cheap .info domain / free .cc domain with a 301 redirect to your banned site, then post using that domain (all links plus anchor text will be credited to your banned site this way)

    b) free URL shortening services e.g. bit.ly , which use 301 redirect. Make sure it's a 301 redirect as not all shortening services provide them. The disadvantage of this option is that you're at the mercy of another company, i.e., if the URL shortening service decides to change from a 301 redirect to some other form, you are screwed. If the URL shortening services goes down altogether, then likewise, you are screwed.

    Simple... when you comment on a WP blog and nothing happens, you've been banned. Normally it will say something like, waiting for approval. Happened to me cause I was a dum ass using SB on my main site. Anyways I was able to appeal it with the method mentioned above.
