    The Q is as the topic says;
    How to check whether a site has been banned by askimet? and thus comments are not approved.
    I am talking in particular reference to scrape box.

    Ok i did so and found that my site is banned by askimet and all comments from my this site are either trashed or sent to spam category.
    but when i posted with other site's links comments were posted fine.

    So how to unban my site from askimet ?

    You could *try* to contact Askimet and claim you were attempting to comment on your friend's blog but it showed up as spam, play dumb and claim you didn't spam anywhere and it must be a competitor.. but likely that's a waste of time; use a buffer site that isn't banned to get the links.
