What IS this?

I’ve been getting this for a while on a few blogs, and I know others have, too. But now I’m getting it on Angie’s and on another blog I recently commented on.

:wtf: is that about? It still posts my comment, but I have to leave and reenter the blog to read another entry or post another comment, in which case I have to go through this routine again.

Anybody know how to make it stop?

    Sad when I also get an error when I publish a post on my own blog. I swear, nothing changed, I didn’t add a thing, didn’t change a thing, it’s just doing it all on its own :( I guess I can start turning plugins off and seeing if that helps.

    Do you use Bad Behavior? Turn it off, and just use Akismet, or else upgrade your BB to the newest version. That’s been the solution when we’ve run across this on our DFM client blogs.

    Thanks, Alison. I have the latest Bad Behavior version, so I deactivated it. Shan says that works. *sniff* Now I have to deal with more spam again. See how I sacrifice for you, Shan?

    I don’t run BB and I don’t get much spam at all. Akismet is catching 98% of it for me!
