Comment Spam

For some reason, the last four days have seen a barrage of comment spam here.  Roughly 15% of the total amount of comment spam I have seen since I started this blog has come in since Thursday. 

Fortunately, the Akismet comment spam filter that WordPress.com provides catches over 99% of the spam.  On the flip side, every once in a while it gets a false positive on a legitimate comment.

While I try to parse through all of the spam before I delete it, the load has been so heavy that the possibility that I might have missed a real comment is pretty good.  So if you left a comment and it did not show up, let me know.

Unless you’re a spammer.  If you are, then, seriously, wtf?
