Comment Spam

Comment spam on the Movable Type blogs has been pretty heavy these past couple weeks, peaking on Sept. 6. I quarentine spam, and made good on my resolution to graph the data. You can see the steady trickle starting last October when I first began to quarentine. It's quite a bit worse now.

I added a second graph for "Spam by Blog" right before posting this. Abra and Isaac are currently in the lead, but this could be anyone's race.

In other news, I've added spam protection to my wiki, though I've yet to be targeted by a spammer on that site. It could happen, I guess.
