Check out these spam numbers from the past few months. Notice a slight surge in spam comments for September?
Fuck a duck! It jumped from an average of 400/month to over 8000. What caused that?? 95% of them were comments on the post about Nike shoes and Jesus, but I wonder why that post. Maybe they’re targeting posts about Nike…or Jesus. All I gotta say is THANK YOU to Akismet for preventing each and every one of those comments from being posted, not to mention letting me nuke them all at once. Also, hooray for IP range bans!
