    i’m getting a ridiculous number of spam comments/day.

    The blog I need help with is flux79.wordpress.com.



    Take a very close look at the comments you have approved please.
    If you approve a single spam comment that can turn your blog into a spam magnet that will be targeted over and over again.

    The worst of all spam containing malware and viruses is not sent to us. It’s removed as it could bring down many blogs if opened.

    The vast and overwhelming majority of all so-called information on the internet is spam. Over 80% of all so-called comments submitted to .wordpress.com blogs every day are spam.

    On the spam that Akismet catches it takes only seconds to click “empty spam” and you don’t even have to click “empty spam” if you don’t want to. Akismet will maintain comments it has caught for 15 days from the time they were received, and then it will delete the comment automatically.

    If you get spam that slips by Akismet then mark it as spam (do not delete it) and over time Akismet will learn it’s spam.
