Thanks to WordPress’ Spam Filter

WordPress has been one of the most user-friendly, powerful blogging services J.’s used online (the others being Blogspot, Xanga, Livejournal, and the now defunct Diary-X) and he’d just like to point out what a relief having Akismet spam filter. Akismet is the spam filter developed by Automattic which is strongly associated with WordPress.

(Yes, even more so than the increase from 50MB of storage space for free accounts to an incredible 3GB of space)

Even a tiny personal blog like J.’s attracts an incredible quantity of spam. In the space of slightly over one year, Akismet has saved J. tons of time by catching 11,958 spam mail which are deleted automatically after 15 days. That’s amazing behind-the-scenes work. It’s about time we remembered the humble spam-filter.

Thank you Akismet!
