Clearly something wrong with Akismet. I’ve checked all my settings this side and went back to WordPress and looked at my Akismet Stats :
These were comments from bloggers that I know that are NOT spammers and the strangest of all is that I’ve never once marked anything as spam that showed up in my spam box. When I clicked on the “1 comment” that was supposedly in my spam box, there was nothing.
7 false positives and 12 total spam but no way to see what the other 5 was as I did not even receive those comments. I use MailwasherPRO for my emails and every comment or post that comes through can be viewed and deleted if I choose to do it. The same with my Gmail account.
So, how can Akismet just delete 5 items as Spam and not notify me or allow me to see what it was? Now I have the problem that comments from one of my blogger friends are being put in spam permanently and Akismet is deleting comments that I haven’t seen and it may not be spam after all! Not fair Akismet! Not fair at all!!!!
