Thank Jesus I installed that plugin. When I started my blog I knew nothing about wordpress so I just as likely could of not installed it.
I don’t understand the ones that just add random letters..what’s that all about?
Lately I’ve also been getting a ton of spam in my instant message program mostly my Yahoo. I just block them but again with the random letters..
Do they contain scripts? Just curious if anyone knows that answer to that one.

Thanx for the smiley tip I’ll make sure to spread the word on my blog and keep an eye open for the little buggers. *wink*

This is usually how I deal with “mild” spam, i.e non-professional spammers who just tend to have bad blog etiquette and keep on dropping off their link for no reason (not saying it’s your case ;-))

Pro spammers are sneaky… recently, I got a lot of messages in Russian, seems that Akismet still has to learn the language 😆

Oh yeah. None of those smilies at the top have any links for your information. 😉 <- Now how about this one! =)
