Blocked by Akismet

Well, it looks like I, like many other bloggers, have been blocked by Akismet because they believe I’m a spammer. A spammer? Have they not read my blog? Seriously, it’s driving me up the wall. There are so many good blogs out there that I’d like to comment on but – whoosh – off to spam it goes. I’ve sent requests to the Akismet support site and filled out their form, but as you get no acknowledgement that they have received anything, I have no idea if anything will happen.

Aaaarrrggghhhh!

Anyone have any other ideas how I can get out of this hell?
