Blwdi spammers

If you’re a WordPress user with the Akismet plugin installed and are currently getting spammered (hundreds in the moderation queue in just a few hours), you need to upgrade to version 1.15. Sorted immediately.

Many thanks to the Maned One for the tip-off.

    Ah! Excellent, thanks Daisy. I am just recovering from my earlier apoplexy at seeing my “comments to be moderated”, so this advice is welcome. :-)

    I’m glad Askimet is back up, because even though I use the latest stable WordPress release (2.0.4), I was getting spammed a lot, as usual really, but this time all the spam comments ended up in the moderation queue. Rather annoying :-)

    Thanks for this – I’d wondered why it had suddenly gone tits up and then fixed itself (I’d upgraded my WordPress in the meantime, which I presume upgrades Akismet at the same time?).

    Getting thousands of the damn things these days, so very grateful when Akismet is doing its job…

    Waving hello from across the pond… just because. :-)
