Whenever my computer isn’t doing anything I put up the ‘live’ plugin so that I can see what is being visited on the site real-time.
However, I got tired of seeing nothing but spam comments coming in and being filtered out by Akismet. 2,284 in 5 months is just crazy.
I took steps and installed re-captcha to tell the computers from the people and hopefully clamp down on the comment spam traffic.
My apologies for the extra step in the commenting but it was necessary.
