Spam Comments

Yesterday, PG logged in with 91 comments that required his approval. All but one were spam.

PG has gotten faster at going through comments since he turned off his Akismet comment-spam catcher, but it’s still taking a lot of his time that could be more useful in locating additional useful posts.

This experience has been educational, however. PG has learned that more than a few comment spammers are not terribly sophisticated. Comments written entirely in Cyrillic tend to stand out even without a spam filter operating.
