More on comment spam

Sometime during the night, Akismet caught the 150,000th spam comment to be sent to this site.

The last 50,000 have taken 104 days to arrive, compared with 95 days for the previous 50,000 and 139 days for the first 50,000. In the last 104 days, an average of 480 spam comments have been submitted each day, which equates to one every three minutes. If it wasn’t for Akismet, I think I would have given up on blogging by now.

  1. You need to add a graph or something. That would be much clearer. Much better for us innumerate folk trying to make sense of it all.

    Plus with a tin of Spam in the background for illustration, just like in the Guardian or something.
