I use Akismet to eliminate spam on my website, though, of course, it doesn’t stop people from trying. Since March 20, 2009, I’ve had 88 spam comments, which Akismet automatically eliminates. I don’t even see them. What some spammers don’t know is that their IP addresses are recorded, and with enough ingenuity and the cooperation of their ISP, these individuals can be identified. Of course, I don’t care enough to do this. Very few people do. What I find amazing is that anyone would waste his time trying to spam my site. I have no more than a handful of readers each day. Why bother?
