Hi - I have Akismet spam control activated, but my site is still receiving an outstanding number of spam comments each day. Today I had over 2,000 (this may have been built up from the last three days) and I deleted them all and refreshed the page and had 2 more, then refreshed again and had 2 more!
I checked out my Akismet stats, and it says for the month of September it's detected over 148,000 spam comments!
Any idea what is causing this? Any way to fix it? Does this have a negative impact on my site (ie loading time?)
