I’ve recently been using Akismet as my spam plugin for WordPress. It had been doing great, until this weekend. All of a sudden, spam started piling up and I was kept busy trying to remove it all. It’s amazing how great spam plugins do work, when they work. I ended up turning on Spam Karma for a while and that fixed everything.
It turns out that Akismet was down over the weekend for some updates. All should be good now though.
It really makes a person realize how great spam plugins are. Maybe it’s time to donate a few bucks. 😉
