There has been talk around here, and at other blogs, about spam comments and how Blogger uses those crazy pictures and check-off boxes to prove you aren’t a spam-bot. I get so frustrated when I try to leave a comment and I have to go through so much rigamarole. Many of you have lamented the need for such tactics if you are to keep spam away.
Well, I don’t get spam nor do I have the check-off boxes or the picture selections. But, WordPress has an effective method of catching the spam. Today, I noticed this message on my statistics’ page:
Akismet has protected your site from 47,547 spam comments already.
I’m telling you, WordPress is the only way to go.
