I’ve shifted my this blog’s hosting situation and URL four times over the past eight months. Boy, that was dumb. What we even dumber was the fact that I hadn’t activated Akismet until just a couple of weeks ago. Every day I was getting dozens – if not hundreds – of spam comments and trackbacks – along with the associated emails alerting me to them. Since I activated Akismet, I’ve had one make it though. On this blog it’s caught almost 600 bad eggs trying to slip in; and on my other one it’s caught almost 1,000. Why did I wait?
