Spam Filter is Being Touchy

Everyday for the last week I have found comments in the spam filter which I have had to manually approve. Most of these I find no reason for why the ‘system’ rejected them.

The spam filter is set up to flag the most serious 4 letter words–not all, but the worst of them.

Additionally it is set to ‘kick out’ anything from one particular commenter who I banned at least 18 months ago (the only person ever banned).

So if a comment section is not taking your comment, don’t take it as a ‘ban’ or anything like that–likely the spam filter didn’t like something. When you end up in the spam filer it temporary stops you from posting until I get it manually approved and then you can post.

I will try to figure out what setting I have control over that will stop this seeming random kickouts.
