My blog has been getting spam comments. I am a new, innocent blogger, and not familiar with the woes and ways of blog spam, but I have installed and activated the Akismet plugin, and am waiting with some hope to see if the spam comments are caught and dealt with automatically. I do hope so. It spoils the fun and excitement of getting a WordPress email if instead of telling me that someone has read and appreciated my blog, it’s just another spam comment.
