I remember reading somewhere (these forums, maybe?) that some spam is simply deleted by WordPress, and we don't get a chance to see them at all. Does that sound right to anyone else?
My numbers jumped from this morning, with nothing more in the spam folder for me to check. I also noticed a lot of referrers to these forums today and views from countries where I know no one, which match exactly the additional spam # from Akismet, so I'm guessing it's all related.
If my quiet little site had so many today, and you have a popular site, russelrayphotos, it doesn't sound like that many.
