Here’s a blurb taken from my WordPress dashboard.
“You have 38 total comments, 2 approved, 36 spam and 0 awaiting moderation.”
Now fortunately I have Akismet which automatically filters spam comments and I actually never see them. But still 94% of the comments are spam which begs the question, what the heck for? I mean the site is most likely spammed by some bot with a list of every blog on the internet, but you’d think they’d realize that anyone who know’s what they’re doing would have spam protection.
But that also brings up a good question, how many of blog admins/users have spam protection? I mean if we all had spam protection then it wouldn’t even be worth the time to run the bots, so clearly a group of uninformed individuals have their blog setup and are getting slammed with spam figuring their getting good user traffic.
Oh well, I guess that means that those of us who know what we’re doing get to benefit from a spam-less blog.
