Dueling Plug-In Agony

A Canadian Personal Finance site owner experienced a conflict between two WordPress plugins: CommentLuv and Akismet. CommentLuv, which the owner appreciates for its charm and ‘no follow’ links, seems to clash with Akismet’s spam filtering features. Regular commenters’ posts are mistakenly ending up in the spam queue when they include CommentLuv links. Despite Akismet’s effectiveness in catching over 11,000 spam comments, the owner must now closely monitor the spam queue to prevent legitimate comments from being wrongly categorized as spam.
