I don't know what's up with the Akismet plug-in today at WordPress. Has it taken a break or something? Maybe it got tired of the junk it has to ward off everyday? It IS up-to-date, in case you were wondering, so. Because seriously, this day I got the most number of spam comments creeping on my inbox. Usually, Akismet does a great job of preventing them from getting to my notifications, and stays at the "quarantined" area just for spammers. But not today. What would have been normally flagged as spam made their way to my inbox freely, as if I turned Akismet off (which I didn't!). Earlier in the day I was pretty impressed how many people seem to comment on my articles at WAHMaholic today (since I don't really check the contents of the notification, I just look at the subject).
But came high noon and they were still coming in! A sneaking suspicion was already at the back of my head, dressed in bright red and waving a flag screaming SPAM!!! It was only in the afternoon that I bothered to log in to WordPress and check to verify my suspicion. It's incredible. Every single one is incomprehensible, a couple was even insulting (with a link to porn sites, of course). All I could say was WOW. Really. I'd understand if it was my Yahoo mail. I mean I DO think that Yahoo gets good business out of the spammers with what the amount of spam that I get EVER SINCE I got an account (okay, accountS) with them. I am thinking maybe I should install another separate plug-in for those pests, as obviously the powers of Akismet isn't enough anymore. It's a wonder this blog isn't pestered with them spammers. Hmm.. I wonder why. Uh-oh. Did I just issue an invitation? Noooooooooooooo!!!!!
