As I explained in yesterday’s post, Akismet banned me from posting comments on WordPress blogs because of my use of a trackback spam tool I tested out a few months ago.
After some searching, I found one other blogger who suggested simply contacting Akismet if you feel you were wrongly blacklisted.
While I definitely deserved some punishment for trying to exploit the trackback system, I had been “clean” form spam-like activities for a long time and had been working diligently for months to restore my blog’s honor in the eyes of Akismet.
Could a simple email be the answer I had been looking for?
In fact, it was. I used the contact form on the Akismet website to submit a “I have a support or feature request” service ticket. I was completely honest in my email where I explained what happend and asked for the penalty to be lifted.

I am always interested in new ways to monetize my blog and make money online. Yesterday I received an email that peeked my interest. It appeared to be highly personalized, specific to my blog, and was very complimentary about my writing and traffic levels. A lesser person might have been suckered.

What makes this video so funny is you realize how incredibly stupid this man is. I know my inbox will probably explode with \/iagra offers for posting this, but if you laugh as hard as I did when I watched it, it will be worth it 🙂
