WordPress Akismet needs some improvement

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/07/31

This week has been really busy, so only this weekend I found some time to go through the incoming comments.

I found quite a bunch of spam, which is unusual, because WordPress.com uses Akismet which is trying to trap this. Mostly it succeeds (like 99+% of the time), but sometimes it doesn’t, and this week there were more than normal.

So I marked them all as spam, and now the Askimet stats headline at https://wiert.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=akismet-stats-display still says “0 missed spam”, and a “100% accuracy rate” but the tables there clearly indicated a bunch of missed spam.

Just in case you wonder too: The spam this week was all about low priced installation guides on getting old software installing on new operating systems.
