    I get the same thing, i think its to do with asikmet, very annoying.
    I googled it a few days ago,, and some guy reported the problem with his own blog, he said it went away when he disabled asikmet.
    And i dont even think he was a spammer, at least he didnt say he was and it wasnt in an SEO context, i think people had been complaining that they couldnt post on his blog.

    Find an auto approve, and then check links, that would be a way to test.
    let me know how you get on.

    It's what happens when akismet rejects your comment.

    yep same deal, my URL has also been blocked, soooo, how to get unblocked?

    its the URL, i tried various, even pointed to a deep link, didnt like it, but as soon as i changed the url to a different site, it posted right away... this is very annoying.

    it's been my experience that only links to the domain will go through.
    I tried searching to find more information, but I've got nothing.

    But that's how it goes for me.

    Search through here for some threads on Akismet...
    - It'll ban you for too many comments to fast
    - Doesn't appear to bad for email or name
    - Does appear to ban for URL and comments
    - Changing the comment even slightly will work, so make sure you spin well
    - Will ban based up on IPs, so be sure to either use proxies or don't post a lot

    I'm not sure what the thresholds are for the various Akismet bans, but they are real and I've hit them on multiple sites.

    Akismet is the most advanced spam defense out there. I get caught multiple times when not even using scrapebox - it's so sensitive, I seem to get caught out even after just 2 or 3 attempts at manually spamming wordpress blogs. Not to mention scrapebox.

    I am thankful that it's only common on wordpress blogs - which are normally useless anyway due to nofollow / moderation.

    Soon, though, the day will come when all the other content management systems use something like akismet. When that happens, the game will change so that only the smartest seos can get the links they need.
