Community Spam Deletion’s Downside

    February 15, 2007

Andy Beard has an interesting article about Akismet’s spam deletion service (I use it here – if I didn’t, you’d have thousands of pieces of spam get through to my comment area every day).

I have noticed that the numbers of false positives (comments of yours getting deleted) are going up. But I’ve been going through and adding those back in.

If you notice your comments are getting deleted here, please email me so I can see if they were deleted by the spam filter (I very rarely delete comments).
