Spam Picks

Akisimet is a spam filter, which – on blogs hosted as sub-domains here on wordpress.com, like this one – comes equipped as standard, one of the huge bonuses of blogging here. It can also be used on self-hosted sites.

It catches most any spammish comment submitted to the site and isolates them, meaning I don’t need to deal with them in normal comment moderation.

Most spam is wearingly familiar and formulaic. Sometimes though, like the tortured words of a pompous politician, it can have an accidental poetry.

Overheard on Akismet

President, I think you’ll agree, this would probably put an end to all the name-calling that Democrats are currently subjected to thanks to our donkey symbol. Holidays are when many of the presents are purchased and shared.
