Is Akismet working properly?

In the past 48 hours I noticed that Akismet is letting through loads of blog spam. I am told this is happening after their latest update. The spam messages getting through are totally stupid and should ring the alarm bells of any anti spam system.

If you’re using WordPress 2 and have Akisment activated, it would be great if you could report on your experience with blog spam in the past few days..

    I am facing the same thing. I am recieving spam comments the whole day; comments that Akismet can easily filter. I think there is a problem with Akismet web services.

    I second that. i had to install math verification for comments. akismet has been letting more trackback spam than comment spam on my end though.
