A few months ago, I began to receive spam comments here on my blog. At first, it was only one or two..but that quickly became ten or so per day. I decided to activate the built-in Akismet plugin for WordPress, and it turns out to have been one of the best decisions I’ve made. This is the message I got when I logged in today:

Akismet has protected your site from 1,062 spam comments.

I highly recommend this plugin to anyone on WordPress!
