Any clues as to what is triggering this Darrel? Things we should avoid?

I wish there was, but just keep doing what you're doing. Regardless of what Akismet thinks, I'm glad you're here!

Akismet's spam filter is one

Akismet's spam filter is one that learns over time. When it flags something as spam, it gets copied over to a moderation queue. When I mark it as spam or not-spam, it sends that info back to Akismet and, I'm told, helps train it so things gradually improve over time.

Your posts are flagged more frequently than others and I don't know why. Akismet, as well as most anti-spam companies, don't freely share their methods for detecting spam as it would allow them to be thwarted.

It's not a perfect, but when's the last time you saw true spam on the site? *knocksonwood*
