Of late I appear to be getting over a couple of thousand spam comments a day, all ably blocked off by Akismet.
In the past, I used to go through the blocked items, just in case some legitimate comments had been suppressed. And I would find one or two a week.
Since early December, I haven’t had the time or the energy to do the blocked item check; I’ve just gone for the delete unseen.
It is possible, as a result, that I may have deleted legitimate comments. If you have been the victim of such a deletion, my apologies.
Do let me know, by writing to [email protected] I have so far been loath to implement any other form of spam filter, especially one based on your entering Dali-clock-esque words. Your comments will help me make that call.
