    Spam coming through, but Mollom claims that it's not Link to this post

    It looks like spammers have found a weakness in Mollom (http://hdrlab.org.nz/spammers-find-a-weakness-in-mollom/), using generally innocuous sounding comments and putting the spam in the author and URL fields of comments. However, I have received hundreds of spam comments over the last 5 days, and Mollom's report says that I have at most one "ham" comment per day, and 70-300 rejected spam comments per day over these days.

    Something clearly doesn't add up here. Either Mollom's reporting is wrong (the spam that I'm getting should be listed as "ham" because it isn't blocking it), or Silverstripe is not reading Mollom's responses properly, and is publishing comments that are marked as spam.

    This all started about a week ago; before that Mollom blocked almost every spam comment, and I only had one or two a week to remove.

    I'm using Mollom 0.2. Has anyone else noticed this? Any solutions?

    Same situation here. I'm using the free version of Mollom. Anyone using the payed version experimenting such behavior?

    Same suddenly getting loads of Spam that is reported as Ham... I'd rather just have the CAPTCHA box there always...
    but mine blocks a spammy entry and displays the CAPTCHA but then if you fill the fields in again and ignore the CAPTCHA it goes through...

    Perhaps it always did this but why the sudden increase of Spam getting through!
