Spam Day

I custom-built a spam prevention filter for The URI! Zone that almost completely nullifies unwanted comments spam. Less than 20 spam comments have ever made it through the filter since 2008. This may seem high until you consider that there were over 5500 attempted spam comments since I last rotated the logs in July 2014. That works out to about 41 spam attacks per day that get destroyed.

Here is a word cloud of the spam that has gotten trapped in the filter in the last 5 months alone, built with Jason Davies' excellent Word Cloud Generator. The bigger words appear more often than the smaller words.

People really want their cheap Uggs.
