Akismet. Does it work?

I honestly don’t know. So far it’s blocked 85 comments and I’d feel bad that some of those were people trying to tell me something. Like “Please buy my extra stock of viagra and custom tube amplifiers so that my homeland’s princess can go to the moon!” or something else to that effect. That kind of comment I don’t need. It’d be nice if someone disagreed with me, or is just as passionate as I am and just felt they had to say something. Then we can participate in intellectual discourse!

Ah, well. Can’t do much about it. I both want site traffic, but not enough to the point that I have to reign in my own comments. Certainly sucks when working hard and putting in effort has some drawbacks. Good enough reason to be lazy? I certainly think so.
