It has been a week since my last genuine comment. I made a comment today on one of John Scalzi’s blog posts. In the time it took me to write the comment, the total comments went from 4 to 28. It now stands at 221. I could never follow that many comments in a single day, every day. Way to much to keep up with and get work done.
In related news, in the last week I have gotten 13 spam comments. 36% of all comments on this blog are spam. That’s much lower than I was anticipating. Based on the ratio of spam user registration to actual users on the forums, I was expecting 5 spam comments for any one genuine comment.
