My Favorite Blogspams

I’ve been running Akismet on this blog since day one and it’s been absolutely fantastic at catching blog spam. The false positive percentage has been nearly zero – somewhere in the 0.01% range. I normally sort through the akismet stuff every other day and double check for any errors. I’ve gathered up a few of my favorite spams for your entertainment:

    It’s really funny that you made links in this post to those… and only with rel=”external” (not nofollows.) Very funny. I thought you said this blog was serious.

  3. oilman says:

    nofollow: I was actually just too lazy to edit the html of the post directly – hehe. I also went back and added a ;) to the deadly serious but just for you Brian :)

  4. I think the one with a broken blog is the funniest. ROFL

  5. Altough I love Akismet too and I promoted it heavily myself, this new math plugin actually stops EVERY ONE of those 50 to 100 spam comments that Akismet catches, simply because they are not human inserted.

    You’ge got to try it.

    And if you use it in conjunction with Akismet, you can find spammers that are actually human, too.

    Interesting that you are having that much success with Akismet. I never bothered to set it up because I thought it wouldn’t really work (my bad). I shut off my comments / trackbacks on my blog because of comment spam. It looks like I will have to revisit the plug in and see how it works.

    BTW – I listen to rockstars all the time. Thanks for the great info…I am from Alberta, so we are practically neighbours! :)

    Perhaps am receiving tons of spam messages daily and it always took many hours to delete all those(I am talking about the time when I didn’t have Akismet) but now it only took a few seconds to get rid of that.

    At last, Yahoo’s new ad platform "Panama" goes live for advertisers, invite-only to begin and mandatory switchover after the new year. Yahoo’s earnings are in, and investors (as well as CEO Terry Semel) aren’t pleased. Where’s the money …

  3. [...] Alright, after reading Oilman’s post about his success with the WordPress Plugin Akismet, I figured I would test it out. I closed off comments a while back as I was sick of monitoring the blog spam. I had held off using Akismet because I thought it wouldn’t work / would take a bunch of tweaking to work properly. I have now installed it and comments are back on! Akismet was pretty easy to get going (just get an API from a account) and enter it into the plugin on the control panel. [...]
