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.
