Getting ridiculous

Sometime in the past week MT-Blacklist blocked its 1000th comment spam since I last did a full install in August. That’s a heck of a lot of spam in just over 2 months – on average about 14 a day.
Sadly, it appears the problem is only getting worse, not better. 🙁

  1. Since I upgraded to MT 3.1 from 2.6x on 09/20/04 and installed the 3.0-aware version of MT-Blacklist, here’s my stats:
    Comment spams blocked: 666
    Comment spams moderated: 178
    Duplicates blocked: 26
    Grand total of 870
    That’s just damn scary to me.
