    Here are some explanations, i'm not convinced from them but why not ? :

    There is so much misleading information about commenting, proxies and Scrapebox. By no means am I an expert. You're welcome to prove me wrong! How Akismet works:

    1. Akismet will block every IP that send more than 100 comments in 30 min. As a result your domain will be blacklisted and you won't be able to comment on Akismet enabled blogs. and/or

    2. Akismet will block every domain that send more than 100 comments in 30 min. As a result your domain will be blacklisted and you won't be able to comment on Akismet enabled blogs. and/or

    3. Akismet will blacklist every domain that is manually marked as spam by 5-10 bloggers. As a result your domain will be blacklisted and you won't be able to comment on Akismet enabled blogs.


    ----------------- Case 1:

    You're using Public Proxies to blast your comments What happens:

    1. You might avoid the IP block (quite unlikely since many other scrapebox users abuse the same proxies)

    2. Akismet will blacklist your domain. 3. Dozens of your comments will be marked as spam by various bloggers.


    Result: Busted! -----------------


    Case 2: You're using Private Proxies to blast your comments What happens:

    1. You have a good chance to avoid the IP block (the more private proxies you have the better your chances are).

    2. Akismet will blacklist your domain. 3. Dozens of your comments will be marked as spam by various bloggers. Result: Busted!


    ----------------- Conclusion:


    - Using public / private proxies won't protect your domain from being blacklisted by Akismet.


    - Using public / private proxies could potentially slow down the commenting process.

    - Using public proxies could rapresent a security risk (your links & comments being changed).

    - Your domain will be blacklisted by Akismet at some point during your first Scrapebox blast.

    - Your domain will be blacklisted forever. - Subdomains and folders are blacklisted forever too.

    - The only way to avoid being blacklisted by Akismet is to comment slowly.

    - Forget about big blasts and write nice and meaningful comments

    - Your competitors could still get you blacklisted in 5 min.

    Interesting take on all of this. Question though is how many webmasters actually spend the money on Askimet?

    Most either moderate their comments or turn them off.

    I just tried this and I could put in any address and it says i'm banned. Tried proxies too. I think this tool is giving false positives.
