Akismet Update

I’ve been running Akismet for most of the calendar year now. Across three different blogs, I’ve received about a thousand comment spams. No righteous messages have been caught, two spam messages did not get flagged automatically and had to be flagged as spam (and thus submitted to the Akismet system) by me. That’s a 99.8% success rate. Pretty damn good stats out of the box.
