Akismet+Anonymous comments

Nathan, it’s all for you! Please post whatever anonymous comment you want now! I’ve finally gone and added Akismet checks for anonymous posts here. It didn’t take long and, with Net::Akismet, was incredibly easy to do. I had disabled anonymous comments because of the overwhelming flood of spam. I don’t write that much here, but somehow the blog-comment spammers decided this was a great place to peddle their herbal remedies. Hopefully, Akismet will keep them at bay. It already blocked some comments while I was setting it up, so I have high hopes.

    since I deleted my lj account I haven’t been able to comment either..

    my akismet filter says it has filtered 22,000 spam messages, I assume that is since I first started my blog over a year ago.

    I wonder how does that kind of traffic affect the web server?

    btw: did you see my sermon on ‘hell?’ http://www.thechurchgeek.com/archives/472
