Spam, Spam, Spam

What’s up with spammers lately? I don’t write frequently to this blog, yet spammers have been repeatedly trying to post their garbage on this site. I only know this since Akismet has caught 99.9% of the spam. The few that have got past went straight into moderation and I manually deleted them.

Since I installed Akismet, it has stopped 337 spam messages. One hundred and thirty four of those messages have come in the last 15 days. That is 39.76% of my total spam messages. I guess the spammers have been busy with their zombie computers. Most of the messages have been focused on this one post. I am closing commets on that post to see if the problem will go away.
