Akismet has caught 50,598 spam for you since you first installed it.
That’s quite a lot of spam, considering that moi Blog contains about 650 posts which have received a little over 2200 legit comments! Of course, I keep deleting oh-so-many seemingly-legit-but-inane-nevertheless comments but even then this is an extremely high number of junk! Thanks Akismet! This place would have been a dumpster if it weren’t for you (or else I’d have become a madman trying to manually delete all those spam comments!)
P.S: I harked back to the Archives and guess what! A little under an year ago (Feb 25th) the legit comments count stood at 1000 whilst spam count had touched 10000. And a year down the line, comments have doubled whereas spam has multiplied five times!!!
