When a comment shows up on the blog wanting to sell Viagra, insurance, or give links to pornography, it gets caught in a spam queue by Akismet for the blogger to determine whether it’s trying to sell something or if the spam-catching software has made a mistake.

By request of Thrawn, we are celebrating the 1000th spam comment caught by Akismet since I first started this blog.

Imagine. I’ve gone through 1000 comments wanting to sell insurance, Viagra, or pornography and didn’t let a single one through my fingers onto this blog!

    Hmm, I wonder…


    Did it catch it?
