Comments, Anyone?

In my never ending battle against spam comments, I recently installed an Akismet-based plugin. It has done a wonderful job so far — only 1 spam comment out of hundreds has made it through. Interestingly, no legitimate comments have been posted since I installed the filter, which has me wondering if those are also getting caught by the filter.

If you’re reading this, please leave me a comment to help me find out whether or not it’s working. If your comment doesn’t appear, if you get a message saying that your comment needs to be moderated, or if you have previously left a comment and it isn’t on the site, e-mail me to let me know (if you don’t know my e-mail address, you can use the contact form by clicking on “Contact Me” in the navigation menu).

Thanks in advance!

  1. Greetings from Stockholm! Will this comment make it across the globe? Will it be read by the FRA (National Defense Radio Establishment) who are supposedly listening in on all wire-based data that crosses the Swedish border? Will Akismet eat it? πŸ™‚

  2. You posted that comment surprisingly fast. It’s only 8 P.M. there, why aren’t you out doing exciting Swedish things?

  3. We are with friends – they are cooking dinner (it smells amazing), I am – as usual – dicking around on the internet.

  4. We’re taking a break from moving. I’m super exhausted right now! And there’s still quite a bit that needs to get done tonight. Moving across the hall like you did Kris must have been awesome! Lucky you.

    OK, that’s enough for my random thoughts. Akismet better not eat this epic tome!

  5. You there! You should take my blog link off of your dailies — I think i deleted it in a huff about 6 months ago. πŸ™‚

    Sometimes, I’m such a girl.
