Spamming Badgers

Today was a landmark for BloggingIT. I had my first proper spam comments on the site.

I woke up and thought that I’d check my email, and for some reason decided it might be smart to check out my blog’s admin page. I’m glad I did!

I found 7 new comments dotted around the site, not a single one happened to be about what was being posted, so I cleared out and decided that it’s time that I did something about it.

I’ve set up a WordPress account and have an API code to activate Akismet.

After long day’s work and a domestic call out, I’ve just sat down, and today alone Akismet has caught 147 spams!

I feel quite lucky that I happened to check this. I wouldn’t want the arduous task of having to clear out all of those spam comments!
