65,000 spams on the wall, 65,000 spams…

… take one down, pass it around, 65,000 spams on the wall…

Akismet, the anti-comment-spam WordPress plugin, has just caught spam number 65,000.  That compares to 701 legitimate comments on 250ish posts.  Thank goodness for Bayes filters or I would never get any work done.

    When you hit a million, you should have a One Millionth Spammer Prize and approve the post. :-)

    Oh man, I love Akismet. Some of my blogs are still running on older versions of WordPress and I still wade through 100’s of spam emails a day… not fun… but Akismet certainly puts some of the fun back into blogging.
