i know i’ve gushed about akismet before — the freeware spam blocking software. but seeing this message in my comment moderation are the other day just made me feel all warm and gushy toward the wonder that is akismet:
Akismet has caught 53,553 spam for you since you first installed it.
i installed akismet at the beginning of october, when my blogging software — wordpress — wasn’t doing the job of effectively catching spam comments and trackbacks. some fine reader suggested akismet, and my life has never been the same. i think i’ll get one of those little ‘best friends forever’ heart necklaces that’s split down the middle, and i’ll wear one half, and give the other half to akismet.
