Aksimet Is Awesome

I know I’ve had a few short posts before about com­ment spam here before, and occa­sion­al­ly I still get some to come through. How­ev­er, Akismet has done a remark­ably good job of catch­ing almost all of them, and with only a sin­gle false pos­i­tive I’ve ever found (and that was because the com­menter had placed two URL’s in the form field). I noticed this morn­ing it had final­ly broke the 10,000 mark for com­ment spam. That’s some pret­ty smart fil­ter­ing if you ask me. Spam­mers: why do you even both­er any­more? Humans: if you ever do post some­thing and it does­n’t show up imme­di­ate­ly, e‑mail me.
