1 Billion Spam Comments In 108 Days

Or so says Akismet in their latest stats update. I know that across all the blogs I run or lend a hand in authoring and managing that there’s been a serious uptake in the amount of spam comments. Hell, Squidoo even got in on the act (or squidoo pages) and are now feeling the wrath of Google because of it.

From Akismet

Total spam: 2,044,449,936
Total ham: 131,167,720

I do know one thing though, there’s nothing I’d rather have than Akismet keeping spam away from the blogs. One of the greatest things to fit into WordPress ever. Fact.
