WTF is akismet

This is a comment prevention system -- that will kill the discussion here

I gave tried 4 times to submit a perfectly legitimate discussion but it keeps being rejected as SPAM by Akismet

Is this because there are links in it?

I gave up finally

I had the same problem earlier today ... I did indeed have a link to a website that was also *selling* a product .... and I also had copied and pasted perhaps too much of the text from the website ... once I included the link a bit abbreviated and reduced the amount of text copied and pasted and increasing my own phrasing for certain points it passed the spam test which seems a bit overly sensitive!
