God Bless You Akismet

by Purple Wyrm on November 24, 2012

Over the last few months, the Wyrmlog has been getting more and more comment spam. I’ve been deleting it as it comes in, but when I got up yesterday to find 83 c0mments, all linking off to cialis and (for some reason) designer shoe sites, I decided enough was enough, and signed up to Akismet.

From the moment I activated it, not one spam has come through. God bless you Akismet!

(I’m assuming of course that legitimate comments are still getting through – haven’t had one yet to see…)

On another subject, Blondie released possibly the greatest song in rock-pop history back in 1999 and I’ve only just been informed? Inconceivable!

Well, it let one of your comments through, and blocked the other as spam. But it also blocked about 130 genuine spams, so I think that’s a fair trade off 🙂
