Break out the bubbly, 100k SPAM comments

Filed under: Random Thought — Nate @ 10:49 am

It seems we crossed the 100k spam comments blocked by Akismet mark. (see right side of the page)

Saved for history: crossing the 100k comment spam marker

That is just insane. 100k. I don’t even know what I would do without them. Well I guess I do — I’d have to keep comments off. That low cost annual subscription pays for itself pretty quick.

I verified on that on October 10, 2012 this site was at ~32k spam comments blocked. On May 17, 2012 only ~23k.

75,000 spam comments in about one year? For this tiny site ?

*shakes head*

Side note: for some reason HP employees are always blocked by Akismet, I don’t know why. I think they are the only ones who have contacted me saying their comments were (incorrectly) blocked.
