    How come most of the blogs I try to comment on takes me to a white post page? The comment does not go through and I don't see any message telling me of it's in moderation or just auto approved.

    It's not every blog, but I would say about 85% and it's very frustrating to waste time on this.

    Yup, this has been happening to me as well. Does this mean that maybe my email is in the Akismet system or something?

    I actually figured it out. It is Akismet. It sends a 403 and a blank page. The way to get around that is to change your comment around. Certain things make it detect the spam.

    So, I changed my Name from a 3 Phrase to a 2 Phrase...and other types of manipulations and it works. I was able to post on the sites that were coming up blank before by doing this.

    if you ever find it wont go thru, write an email to askimet and just say a competitor spammed your link, they will take it off their blacklist but only 1 time im guessing.
