Akismet: You Rule, Thank You!

A big shout-out to the awesome folks at Akismet. They make a tool that works with WordPress to filter out all the spam comments that get submitted to this site. I was under the radar for a while there, not getting much in the way of spam, but I must have been noticed by the spammers because now I’m getting a lot of spam. Akismet caught 80 (!!) spam comments posted to this blog in the past 24 hours, and all were legitimate spam. That’s a 100% success rate – very nice. I don’t make money off this blog, but I’m tempted to pay their $5 a month commercial license key fee just to help them out and make sure they stay in business.
