    Of course, you hate them. But - any original comment about spam? Here is mine - I don't know if that original - made via a cartoon character of mine: http://pypys.wordpress.com/2012/04/20/spam/

    And yours?

  2. I've done a couple of posts about participating in an Anonymous operation against spammers. Does that count?

  3. I have a habit of replying to spammers to string them along and annoy them:

  4. I don't think about them at all and I'm amzed that you do. The vast and overwhelming maount of so-calle information on the interent is spam. over 80% of all so-called comments submitted to .wordpress.com blogs every day is spam. Our blogs are equipped with Akismet, so I don't waste any time thinking about spammers,whether they be bots or humans. I click the "spam" button and move along.

  5. Timethief - I am new to WordPress and Askimet - just over 2 months. Surprisingly, I already get over 100 comments each day. In my case over 99% of the comments are spam. But Askimet seems to think ALL the comments are spam. So, unfortunately, I have to browse through each comment to see if it is really a spam or not.

    I can see how Askimet decides when a comment is a spam. But how does Askimet decide what is NOT a spam?

    When you approve a false positive comment found in the Akismet spam queue Akismet learns.
