I recently installed the Akismet blog comment spam filter. As of today, Akismet has already filtered out 57 spam comments. The blog does have 1 comment thus far, although that doesn’t really count since it’s simply a trackback. That’s not unexpected, though, since publicizing the blog has yet to commence. Thanks to effective spam filtering I have one less blog administration task to worry about.

If you use WordPress you can download the Akismet plugin. Not on WordPress? Akismet is also available on for various other systems and platforms.
