Weird comment spam (3 posts)

    I got this weird comment spam today (using akismet 2.0 on WP 2.2) - it doesn't show up on the blog, but I got an email telling me about it. Is it something *dangerous* and do I need to worry about it?

    I get about 10 to 20 spam comments a day. I'm getting tired of the fact that I have to moderate this. Every day...tons of comments...there must be a way for WordPress to debug this.

    I believe you can turn off email notification of spam comments.

    They'll get stored in akismet until you delete them.
