Spamming is up. I’m referring to comment spamming of blogs.
I have just deleted 26 spam comments. When I checked this morning, I deleted 29 spam comments. In the middle of the day, I deleted another 23 spam comments.
Until recently, I would rarely see more than 2 spam comments per day.
I’m guessing that this is a good sign for the economy. It suggests that someone has money to spend on hiring spammers.
Oh, and Akismet is great in detecting spam. I do briefly scan what it finds to see if there are any false positives, though that seems to rarely happen.
