- Using a URL as the Commenter's name (http://ww.sitename.com and re-inserting it into the website field)
- Leaving an "innocent" comment like "Great site." with no URLs so the spam isn't triggered
This type of comment was getting published directly onto my blog (Wordpress) since I do not have moderation on all comments. I have routed their efforts by turning on moderation anytime "http" is in the comment content, name, etc. This of course also will moderate a real comment with a link in it, but it's a temporary solution.
Hopefully Akismet will smarten up soon, but I imagine other blogs will have this same problem?
