I’d tried to avoid switching on the Akismet anti-spam plugin. I’ve been concerned by trying to automate the spam-killing process, and fearful of losing some of my dozen a week (sweet jeebus, that’s a whole dozen? Big time, here I come…) comments to the land of the false positive.
But today has just been bonkers. 359 bloody spam comments since I left work. 359.
Actually, on checking again, it’s apparently 362. This cannot continue, so I’m giving the automation a go. If you comment and it doesn’t get through, try emailing me and I’ll see if I can sort it out.
But until something like that happens, I’m going to have to admit defeat, and let the machine take over a little. Boo hiss.
