Since the upgrade, there have been 12,000 (!) attempted spam accounts, and only a handful get through, so I think we’re doing a pretty decent job. If people ever catch a nasty one, you can always email me directly at [email protected] and I’ll go zap it right away.

I don’t mean to nag or anything, but I’m serious about the Askimet integration. It could nearly eliminate your spam problems. Anything I create, anymore, that has the ability to be commented on has some sort of askimet integration. The service is just wonderful.
