In a post on May 5th I wondered aloud which of three blog milestones would be reached first. It is sad but true: Akismet has stopped its 100,000th spam comment.
That is not the sum of spam comments since the start of Translate This! For most years I used SpamKarma, even after the developer stopped supporting the product. The 100,000 mark is a result of relatively recent activity.
The next milestone will be at the end of June when my blog will celebrate its 8th birthday. A big thank you to all my readers and subscribers.
