15,000 and then some

In just eight months, Automattic’s Akismet plugin has pretty much eliminated my spam problem all together.

Akismet has caught 15,082 spam for you since you first installed it.

I first installed it near the end of October last year and it’s just been doing a fantastic job. For those of you keeping score at home, that’s 4,881 since I last mentioned it back in February. If you do the math, that averages out to roughly 57 spam comments per day that I don’t have to worry about. Thanks again to Matt and the Automattic team.
