This happens when Akismet doesn't like the update you're trying to make and marks it as spam.

When this happens, an administrator or some other person in the #meta channel can manually mark your account as not-spam and it should allow you to update the profile again... unless you're actually putting in spam, in which case Akismet will go back to marking it as such.

In any case, I have unspammed your profile, and you should be able to edit it again.
