Akismet Letting A Lot of Spam Through

Apparently I am not the only one who noticed that Akismet — the anti-spam system used by WordPress and other CMSes to reduce the amount of comment spam — seems to be letting a lot of obvious spam comments through.

Still, overall, Akismet is a godsend. When I log in and see “Akismet has caught 22,747 spam for you since you first installed it” I can’t help but smile.
