If you are using an older version of reCaptcha, the plugin was marking all comments as spam. The underlying recaptcha library needs an upgrade.

This has me really confused. I have a client whose comments are all (or,
perhaps, almost all) being marked as spam. WP 2.8.4. Upgrading is, for
the moment, not possible.

I have:

      * Disabled Akismet
      * Made sure that there are no blacklisted words
      * Checked that it's not PEBKAC[1]

Is there anything else that might automatically be putting things in the
spam queue?
