Depressing Observation

Since January 16, 2006, over 2,000 attempts to post comment spam to this site have been logged. That’s more than twice the number of legitimate comments posted to this site since June, 2001 (not all comments have been preserved in the various incarnations of this site since then, so the actual number of legitimate comments is actually higher).

Fortunately, the Akismet plugin, which is included included in WordPress 2.0 has block all but 2 attempts to post comment spam to this site. Still, it’s depressing to consider the slime out there who think nothing about defacing other peoples web sites with their garbage.
