Is Akismet down?

I’ve grown so used to the awesome spam blocker that WordPress.com includes for free (it comes from Akismet, which is owned by Automattic, the same folks who do WordPress).

But tonight a TON of spam got through. So, I wonder if Akismet is down or if something got horked?

By the way, if Matt Mullenweg is reading this, can you let me see older comments on the comment page? I can only see the last few comments and when I get a spam storm like this it makes it very difficult to be sure that I deleted them all. Same on the spam page. Let me see hundreds, not just the last few.
