Spam, Spam, Spam

Since this blog went live in September 2006 (when I moved from Blogger to WordPress) I have had just over 12,000 comments posted, for which I think you all.

Since I installed Akismet in September 2010 it has caught over 50,000 items of comment spam. It roared past the 50,000 mark overnight thanks to 207 spam comments that came in while I was asleep.

Goodness only knows what really popular blogs have to deal with.

  1. I get a fair amount of spam and I’m nobody.

    As you saw in the twitter stream, I’ve managed to lose some of the rare real comments I get in the process…

    Great to hear you’ve got tools to stop social spam. You’re exactly right: larger blogs and sites share your pain. Fortunately, there are real-time technologies (e.g. Impermium.com) that can deploy across an enterprise to stop comment spam, profanity, fake registrations among other things put out there by the bad guys.
