Akismet key not checked
It seems that the Akismet key is not checked properly, because even if I do not set a key, the check will be executed. This takes (almost exactly) 2 minutes. I guess then the http request has its timeout.
First I've realized this behaviour (using powermail 1) in version 1.0.2. Then I've upgraded it to 1.2.1 and this issue appeared. Today I've updated to 1.3.1 and the problem still exists.
For now I've just deactivated this validator.
But it would be better if wt_spamshield causes no 2 minutes delay between clicking submit button and getting response.

The "akismet check takes a lot of time" problem should already be solved (#62238).
I am surprised that it still occurs to you...
Now i set a curl timeout after 10 seconds.
The key has already been validated by the code but the akismet library contained some errors an returned wrong values.
This will also be fixed in the next version.
