I am not spamming my own blog

I just discovered a funny bug with WordPress and Akismet. As I was trying to post a comment in response to a reader’s comment, it did not appear in the post. The comment had a hyperlink in it. I checked out and detected that Akismet had caught my own comment as spam.  I posted it while logged in.

It is naturally fine that Akismet is in the alert to keep spam out of my blogs. However, it is not likely that I would be spamming my own blog. Of course a blog is by definition spam in the good sense of the word so the owner of a blog should by all means be allowed to spam their own blog as much as they want to.
