Nearly 60,000 spam comments and counting

Posted By on June 9, 2007

For those of you dealing with email spam, you know what a challenge it is to keep it under control. Thankfully there are many excellent ‘add ons’ to email clients or web based email services to help keep this under control. (ie. Google’s web-based GMAIL does a pretty good job) If you have a blog, the problem of ‘spam comments’ is no less of an issue. I’m currently using a WordPress plug-in (installed in October of 2006) that has relieved me of a significant chore; I only hope Akismet hasn’t flagged many legitimate comments as spam? (I never look at what it catches) Nevertheless it interesting to see the ‘counter’ climb.

Akismet has caught 59,766 spam for you since you first installed it.
