A Million Spam Comments and a Response from GoDaddy

I was looking at the comment spam filter on my blog the other day (provided by Akismet from Automattic) and noticed that it had reached 1,000,000 blocked spam comments.

That’s certainly a large number and I’m impressed. Akismet has definitely saved me a lot of time and aggravation and has made having comments on posts possible.

Another thing that impressed me today was that when I went to check my email, I saw an email from GoDaddy. At first, it seemed automated, but after reading it, I could tell they had read the post, understood what I was saying, and spent time writing a response. I posted their response as a comment to the post here and encourage you to read it. They even said they’re considering changes.

I’m going to take it a step further and ask if GoDaddy is interested in doing an interview with Service Untitled. Regardless of their survey techniques, GoDaddy is an interesting company that I would be interested in learning about. Let’s see what they say.
