I was checking my WordPress Akismet spam list to see what spammers are trying to spam my blog with. Well, the usual same stuff that you would have expected: Porn, Pills, Casinos etc.
2. This comment about native support for getElementsByClassName in HTML 5. I can understand why the comment was considered as a spam since there were quite a number of links in it.
What I’m trying to say here is: Don’t think that what’s in your Akismet spam list are all spam. There might be some great comments (I call them hidden treasure) that might have just ended up treated as a spam when they are not.
Does those 2 comments look like spam to you anyway? Have your say.
