I suppose it is a sign of growing popularity that I’m getting an increasing amount of comment spam – or just a fact that the spammers will try it on with any wordpress.com blog.
Oddly enough, Lorelle has just blogged about this. I’m getting about 50 a day at the moment, and one or two sometimes slip through past Akismet, but I can easily click the “mark as spam” link in the email notification of any new comments.
Anyway, the Akismet spam filter is pretty good. If only I didn’t get any at all, I’d avoid the need to 1) go and review the entries in the Akismet panel on the Dashboard, and 2) click the Delete All button….
