UPDATE: the new GASP Anti-Spam WordPress plugin has been released and is available in the WordPress Plugin Repository.
THIS is the ALTERNATIVE TO AKISMET that provides the SOLUTION to being Flagged as a Spammer! Spread it throughout the blogosphere and your comments will work again.
If you are currently flagged by Akismet as a spammer or have ever had a problem with being flagged please comment in this post. We will periodically move your links up into the body of this post so that bloggers can see how pervasive this issue already is.
We may as well make it worth you time so please include your preferred anchor text and a short description of your site.
Contact Akismet Support to ask that you be unflagged as a spammer

There were so many more bloggers complaining about being flagged as spammers that we gave up listed them on this page and developed an Akismet alternative instead. I published it now so that when other posts are published tomorrow morning bloggers will be able to comment in this post too.
