WordPress and Askimet Spam blocker

Posted in Wordpress by microwavebiscuit on June 8, 2007

I have been blogging on and off for many years. I started with blogger, switched to Movable Type and eventually switched over to WordPress many years ago. Due to various circumstances I stopped blogging for a while and about 4 months ago I started this blog up. Over the past 4 months not one spam comment has made it through. During my previous blog writing years blog spam was always an issue. Actually when I first started blogging there was no such thing as blog spam and when it started up I was shocked. It was a constant battle to prune out spam comments and many utilities popped up over the years to prevent blog spam but none of them worked as well as Askimet does now. Great job on the part of the developers of both WordPress and Askimet to prevent blog spam.
