Akismet Has Saved Me

To get rid of all this damn spam, I have decided to install Akismet. Yes, you guessed it, that’s a SPAM blocker for these comments. I was going to wait until v2.1 which I am planning to have out this winter, but it was too damn annoying. I would also like to thank Alex for creating a PHP5 library.

    But I rather like seeing “I couldn’t even imagine that double penetration will give me such pleasure”

    Well, we always have you…

    Ray informed my Google will unregister my site if I keep existing SPAM on my site. I was going to keep the SPAM on the link above for historical reasons, but have decided to get rid of it. Akismet has a nice way of registering false positive and true negatives, so I made a script for it which I was going to do anyway eventually.

    Yeah, but can it filter out your friends when they turn into spammers? By they way, have you tried Cialis? It can do wonders for your love life and your script execution times. Try it now free and http://www.jameswashere.net

    Yeah, I turned Akismet on, and I haven’t had any comment spam. I did have an issue with my chat box for a while, but I wrote a nice keyword filter for it and it is working like a charm.

    I’m not sure if I’ve ever commented on an akismet-using site before. I wonder if it works. Hey, how about setting a text colour on the site?

    Welcome MJR. Can I ask how you found me?
