Two months ago, I reported that I was getting about 2,000 comment spam messages a day. Today, the number is closer to 3,000 a day. Ah, the march of progress.
(Note: this is not an appeal for help, or an excuse for another of you WordPress zombies to try to get me to switch. You’ll note that you don’t see 3k spam messages a day. And honestly, the only real way for me to get rid of comment spam is to get rid of comments. Which I’m not planning to do.)
