Akismet false positives?

It happened to Jerome last week here, now it happened to me too on leu’s blog: a comment declared as spam by akismet (I just had a link to a Bitflux Blog article in it and Jerome’s was unsuspicious too).

Anyone else experienced such problems? Would be too bad, if akismet is getting less reliable…

It happens once or twice a week. Completely unsuspecting comments without links… But if I look at how much real crap gets filtered out, I can live with it. Beep, K

After reading this post, I did a thorough check tonight of the 371 trapped spam items waiting for action. One was a legitimate comment and boring as the exercise was I was nevertheless glad I had taken the time, not just – as previously – trustingly hitting “delete all”.
