Akismet defends The PC Doc blog against over 25,000

October 2nd, 2006

I upgraded this site to [tag]WordPress 2.0[/tag] two months ago and activated the [tag]Akismet[/tag] anti-spam plugin.  In that time, Akismet as protected readers from over 25,000 items of [tag]spam[/tag]. 

Akismet is great

Wow!  I'm really impressed.  This alone made the move to WP 2.0 worthwhile.  If each spammy comment or trackback had taken me 1 second to deal with, it's saved me almost 7 hours so far.  Given that each spam item takes about 3 - 4 seconds to deal with, saved time is about 14 - 28 hours.  Pretty significant.

The spam load on this site has steadily increased over time - I guess that's the price of popularity.  Thanks to Akismet, I have one less thing to worry about.
