Pre-Christmas Spam Sale?

I’ve been averaging 200 – 300 comment spam per day over the past few months. Today, my comment spam has bounded like twelve lords a leaping to over 1,500 in the past 24 hours. Luckily, all of the comment spam has been caught by the Akismet spam plug-in for WordPress. According to the Akismet site, “93% of all comments are spam”, and my own stats confirm that.

Thank you, Akismet. You are doing the world a great service.

    I’m doing quite fine with my “math test” Turing test. No more spam at all!

    The trick is to customize the test so that spammers can’t adapt.

    I change it routinely… just a tiny bit.
