There’s a stopper-style bug in the the latest Akismet plugin for WordPress. If you have multiple pages of Spam Comments, it keeps returning the first fifty — not good if you get as much Spam as we do, as we have to periodically check for false positives.
The fix is easy…
In Akismet 2.1.4, change wp-content/plugins/akismet/akismet.php, line 483 from:
$comments = akismet_spam_comments( $current_type );
$comments = akismet_spam_comments( $current_type, $page );
