Run Hans, the dike is bursting! So far, Akismet blocked nearly every spam comment that got to this blog (excepting the shoutbox, of course) and I only had to deal with a trickle of four to ten every day. Yesterday, 247 messages managed to get past Akismet, but fortunately I require everyone to have their comments approved atleast once before they’re allowed to post unmoderated. This meant I was left with the unenviable task of digging through 246 unapproved messages to get to one comment which is probably not spam because it contributes so well to the topic it was on. Such carefully thought out words are hard to find on the Internet these days, and I thought that comment deserved to be saved from being dumped along with the misfits.
For some reason, my blog attracts large amounts of spam. Some people even claim that spambots are the only visitors I have. Those same people languish under the comments of highly intelligent humans, and so I’m glad I’m not in their club.
