Akismet is TRWTF



  • Did Akismet change recently? I've never encountered it before but today on the main article I had to try a couple dozen iterations of my comment before it let me post.

  • This is not directed at you... but I've gotten a handful of complaints about this, but no one is actually being helpful. You'd think if anyone knows how to submit a bug report, it'd be this audience...

    Can you give me some examples of comments that were blocked?  I need the full details, including user name, IP, content, and date and time.


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    Here's the example I ran into yesterday on the Big Ball of Yarn article. I used this account and it seemed to be the quote blocks that it didn't like, as soon as I took them out I was able to comment. Also, I was able to edit the comment later and submit the quotes. I just tried making a new comment this morning and it still was blocked. I'm not going to post my IP address, if you need it I can PM you or something. It's my company's IP and I'd rather not be responsible for some idiot TDWTF lurker DDoSing us.

    That's not a moon; It's a space station.

    There's a small thermal exhaust dependency, right below the main class. The target area is only 4 lines long. A precise hit will start a chain reaction that should segfault the system. The code is wrapped in try { }, so you'll have to use proton torpedoes.

    the other RWTF is that, according to Google, Nagesh speaks italian.

    I just tried to enter a comment in the "Big Ball of Yarn". One sentence, definitely not spam, but Akismet complained. There is definitely a bug involving quote blocks. It appears that attempting to include too many quote blocks in your reply causes Akismet to barf. Deleting a couple of quote blocks solved the problem

    Here'e one more example. I try to reply answer to this comment. Akismet won't let me.

    Jaimy's social ineptness making it unable for him to stand up against some total looser and new coworker lead to the destruction of a whole IT company.
