Hitting a SPAM milesteone

This blog has hit an important milestone which gives a good indication of how much it’s grown and how popular it has become. Since I upgraded it to WordPress a couple of months ago, it has received a grand total of 10,000 spam comment. Well, it’s probably received more while I’ve been typing this, but you get my drift.

One great thing about WordPress is that it ships with a brilliant plugin called Askimet that has protected me from all this spam in the last few months. My attitude to comment spam has totally changed now. Before it was something annoying, driving me to despair! Now it’s just something I’m curious about .. oh look .. there goes another spam comment. Askimet is just brilliant. I wish I had something similar for my email!


  1. I wrote about that very subject yesterday. Akismet has helped restore sanity, allowing me to concentrate on what I do best: write. Congratulations on reaching your important “milestone.”

  2. Wow! 10,000 spam comments?
    Like, CONGRATS man! 😀 😀 😀

    But unfortunately, I’m way ahead! BlogforPeace has about 30,000 spam comments caught.

    But Blogging India only 104 🙂
