Technical problem: spam

Fifty Billion is quite a mark and Askimet has just hit that number for spam comments blocked on blogs. TechCrunch has the story.

“In April, Akismet blocked 1.8 billion spam messages, or 60 million pieces of spam per day, 2.5 million per hour, or 700 per second.”

“According to stats from the company, 92% of all comments checked by Akismet are spam.”

That is a severe noise level!

just think how fast the I’net would be if that sort of noise wasn’t clogging the pipes …
