    This thread is made so people can know the truth about Akismet.

    I wrote an e-mail to Akismet here is what I said and then the response.

    I said: I think my site has been listed as a spam site how can this be fixed ?

    Then this was the response from support@akismet.com:

    Most blog owners regard comments similar to yours as spam. You can expect your comments won't often be published.

    That's not the case everywhere. Akismet is not a blacklist. Each blog owner teaches Akismet which kinds of comments they wish to publish and which they do not. That's their decision and under their control.

    So to me it seems kind of like getting emails inboxed or put in the spam folder I was told and read that Akismet blacklists sites that's not true.

    It depends upon the API i guess , if the site is banned under a API code, Its banned on each and every site on which that same API code is used.
