There has been a huge increase in spam comments getting through the Askimet filter in the past week. Seems like nearly 50 spam comments a day are getting through. The comments are clearly spam, but are not being caught any more.
I no longer empty the spam folder - has 2,400 comments this morning - because WP advised it doesn't have to be cleared and individual spam will be cleared after 15 days anyway.
Anyone else getting irritated with higher volumes of spam?
The blog I need help with is namawinelake.wordpress.com.
