This morning I woke up to find my inbox full of emails asking me to moderate comments. Considering the current visitor rate on the site, I wasn’t surprised to find that all of these coments were spam.
To be proactive, I’ve activated the Akismet Plugin. This plugin will filter comments as they come in and only post comments which it knows aren’t spam. Now, your comments might be picked up as spam at first, so I’ll be reviewing comments marked as spam on a daily basis.
Akismet is supposedly a smart program that learns from its mistakes so, as time goes on, it should be making less mistakes, all the while making my life a lot easier.
