So Akismet seems to be working out pretty well, but there are still some evil spammers getting around it (or at least stuffing several blogs’ Akismet Moderation queues). I’ve added a couple more countermeasures – one to deal with automated spam comments, and another restricting new blog signups to IP addresses located in Canada (to prevent the Russian spam farms from targeting our happy little blogging community site).

As always, if anyone has ANY problems with the site – comments not being published, etc… PLEASE let me know as soon as possible so I can fix it.
