Well, I don’t know whether to be impressed or upset. My fledgling blog has 60 comments (included my own) but:
Akismet has protected your site from 246 spam comments already.
I am happy that I am getting protected from the spammers, at least. WordPress seems to be one of the better providers, in my humble opinion.
I actually enjoy reading the spam comments as some of them are obviously spam with multiple links to seedy and commercial sites, etc. Others are, sadly, worded with treachery and pretending to be actually interested, pleased, angered or supportive of my posts.
When I write on someone else’s blog, I usually have more to say than, “Great blog. I am very interested in this topic” OR “This is strong in word. I am wonder you are is your own work?” Or even, “I instead used oregano and find it tasty also” (this one turned up on a blog post which had nothing to do with cooking, bit of a give away). However, sometimes I just want someone to know that I like what they wrote or how it is written. I take care now to make sure they know I actually read their post and my comment has no agenda.
