Every blogger has, or should have Akismet running on their system.
And every blogger has likely been amazed and thankful for all the spam comments that it has filtered out from their account.
But you just have to be amazed.
As a blogger you continually get spam comments sent to you, and you have to have a way to block them.
Akismet does that very well, as indicated by the tallies in our account today.
“Akismet has caught 1,000 spam for you since you first installed it.”
