Spam and More Spam

Wow, the spammers never let up. After cleaning out my spam this evening, I was presented with the following message

Caught Spam

Akismet has caught 38,644 spam for you since you first installed it.

You have no spam currently in the queue. Must be your lucky day. 🙂


That’s almost 40,000 spam attacks stopped here at Mr Papa’s World. I have had the software running for a year or so now. These spammers try to leave stupid comments on my posts. Luckily, Akismet is hard at working catching most of the spam. You may notice an odd one or two slipping through now and then, but I usually catch them pretty fast. The ones Akismet catches, you never see.


  1. Wow, that is a ton of spam! I have had a lot less on It has had just over 6,000….but I thought that was a lot! Over at, I have had only 68. How is your cruistalk website faring with spam?
