    Default WordPress Akismet and ZoneAlarm

    Hi guys,

    Akismet has been eating my comments for months now, and I finally had an opportunity to test it.

    First, I unchecked every option under Privacy one by one for a particular site, but my comments were still being filtered as SPAM. Then, I allowed everything for that site -- no go. Finally, I turned everything off... SUCCESS!

    There's obviously a major problem with Privacy settings, even in beta 7.

    Operating System:
    Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:
    ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
    Software Version:
    6.5

    There are some sites, that when a page loads it checks the number of scripts running. Since ZA uses a script to do privacy filtering, there are too many scripts running, thus the loaded page is invalid, and you can't do anything with it. Does this sound like what is happening?

    Akismet isn't based on scripts, so I doubt that. I think it's something to do with referrals and/or cookies.
