In the past year 106,901 spam comments have been left on this diary. The daily ratio of spam to real comments is several hundred to one.
Ottmar, don’t you scan everything that Word Press presumes as spam, just in case some of it is not?
most certainly not. I will not scan 300-500 comments a day to see whether there are one or two that were incorrectly presumed to be spam. There are things to do, people and places to see…
To that I’ll add that, if a person has the feeling that their comments have been deleted together with the comment-spam, they might want to try using no links in their comment – it might also be wise not to use an email address like firstname.lastname@example.org…
