Akismet Rocks

December 19, 2012

excited smileyA few weeks back I mentioned the problems I’ve been having with comment spam.  One day I found 33 spam messages I had to clean out.  Another day it was 73.  These people doing this were beating my SI Captcha Anti Spam plug-in and making me think all kinds of words I have no business thinking.  So finally I bit the bullet and signed up for Akismet about a week ago.  Since then it has intercepted nearly 60 spam comments I didn’t even have to fool with.  Yea!!!  Akismet rocks!  It’s da bomb!

If you’re being plagued with spam, you might find that this is the answer.  I highly recommend it because not one spam comment has gotten through since I signed up.  Now if somebody would just invent a button we could push that would blow spammers’ computers up, that would be even better. Sigh.

Merry Christmas!

  1. I pray for them … but the SPAMS keep coming. My Blog tends to filter out automatically “Anonymous” comments so they don’t appear on the Blog – but they also send me a copy to my email address. This allows me to see which posts they have Spammed and, if needed, delete the few who get through my Blog filter.

    So far, only three or four got through the filter. I don’t know what the filter is called. It’s put there by the Blog people automatically.

    God bless you Barbara.

  3. I think Blogger has a good system. I use WordPress and it is privately hosted. So far the number of spams intercepted is now almost 80. You’d think these guys would catch on after awhile!

  5. I only get spam once in awhile and I only have to delete it. It doesn’t pass by the captcha thing.
    Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  9. Hi Barb,
    I gave you an award too! Uhm…with a little foodie twist thrown in. (Though I really was suffering from sugar overload with joy…)
