I don't know what witchcraft Akismet do to make their Wordpress anti-spam plugin work, but it's extremely good.

@virtualwolf Have you considered not allowing comments in the first place?
@starbreaker Nah, I like (legit) people being able to leave comments. I've got some nice ones (https://blog.virtualwolf.org/nostalgia-and-the-classic-mac-os/) and some people actually asking questions about the content of the posts (https://blog.virtualwolf.org/setting-up-dns-over-https-on-macos/ and https://blog.virtualwolf.org/installing-linux-mint-19-1-on-a-late-2010-macbook-air/) which is great. :) The spam comments aren't a big deal, I just log in every few weeks and nuke them all, haha. I was more just impressed at how well it works.
@virtualwolf Fair enough. It's just that I see comment sections as unnecessary when people could just link, quote, and comment on their own blogs/websites/social feeds.
