Akismet seems to be working very well for me, only
3 4 spam comments have gotten past it since I migrated to WP (in mid January,) all of which ended up in my moderation queue – so they never made it to the blog. The two most recent were this morning.
I’m not sure why they came through tho, since the only appearant difference between them and a bunch of the recent messages Akismet caught is the link they were trying to promote. All the others were porn-related – these was about jeeps. (I think… I didn’t actually click the links to find out.)
I don’t get that much traffic, but these stats are still interesting to me:
Akismet has caught 1,917 spam for you since you first installed it.
You have no spam currently in the queue. Must be your lucky day. 🙂
Either that, or I just deleted everything Akismet has identified as spam.
