I use the Akismet spam plugin on all my WordPress blogs. It’s a wonderful thing. I think the thing about Akismet that’s most fun is that it tells me the IP address of the spam originator.

So, get this… on my art blog, Akismet has caught 108 spam comments since I installed the plugin. Of those 108 spam comments, 103 of them originate from customers of the RIPE Network Coordination Centre in Amsterdam (the one in the Netherlands, not the one here in New York).

Isn’t that interesting? I thought it was interesting. It’s so interesting that I declare a pox on the RIPE Network Coordination Centre!

Spam is evil, children. I’m sure if it had existed when I was a young person, my grandmother (bless her heart) would have declared anyone engaging in such behavior was incurring the wrath of God. Who am I to argue with Grandma? Just helping out with the pox here.
