Back in May, I made a post called “Akismet is fantastic!" That was back when Akismet had blocked a mere 1,062 spam filled comments. Today, I’m reaching the 14,000 mark. I post about this today, because yesterday Akismet introduced a bug in their statistics update that caused over 150 of them to not be filtered for me. My inbox was full – luckily 1) WordPress makes it incredibly easy to mark these as spam and move on and 2) They fixed the bug very quickly. Again, I never realize how wonderful it is until I’m without it for a few hours… I have added the Akismet spam counter on the bottom of the right column for fun.
