Influx of SPAM – batton down the hatches!

TechOps Guy: Nate

I don't know what is going on but for some reason this blog has been getting a lot more SPAM comments recently. I mean normally Akismet takes care of everything and MAYBE one gets through a MONTH, eleven have gotten through today alone (update: now 14)

I haven't been keeping track, but that little counter on the right side is up to almost 75,300 now -- the last time I recall noticing it I thought it was below 30,000..

The Akismet plugin says it is operational and the API key I am using is valid,and all servers are reachable.

I wonder what is going on, maybe today is just my lucky day.
