We are really getting tired of spam.  They get past the captcha and keep posting.  We have decided to pay for an Akismet account for Geekswithblogs.net globally and have integrated it into the system.  We hope this will take spam down by 50%.  My hope is you will see a dramatic decrease in spam and we hope to continue to build the system further in our fix to end minimize the spam on Geekswithblogs.net.  I will also be going through the old feedback and running it against the Akismet system to see what should be labeled as spam.  Akismet is not perfect and it still lets a lot of posts through, but it definitely helps!

I'm not sure if this is related to the spam or not, but I've noticed a few posters don't have anywhere to comment on their posts. Sometimes I'd like to leave feedback but there's no way to.
