I just hit the 10.000 spam comments mark in an aprox. 6 months time span.. I don’t think if this is a good thing (because Akismet caught 99% of the 10.000 spam comments) or a bad thing (because only 5% of all the comments I received are from real humans).
So we can see a trend in these numbers and figures .. Here is an official statement in Akismet’s website:
98,132,285 spams caught so far
644,796 so far today
93% of all comments are spam
I resent that .. A LOT .. I knew the blog spamming industry (the nofollow does no good, because the spammers don’t care about PR) was pretty grown and developed but 93% spam ? Sheesh’.
