I guess the title says it all … Akismet, which is a comment spam identification and deletion tool, is under the active menu, Manage, not under Comments.Odd.On a related note, I’m getting something like 5000 comment spam attempts a week, of which about 1 makes it through onto the site.Two things that implies:
- Akismet is stunningly amazingly incredibly good. There are no words.
- A huge amount of web traffic is spambots looking for places to implant their evil input. I wonder what percentage? 1%? 3%?
- Bonus implication: the success rate for comment spam is approaching zero … for blog/forum owners who know about Akismet.
