WordPress.com does an excellent job of protecting their bloggers from spam. They flag comments as spam and keep them aside for our review. I just decide to keep or delete them. So far I have deleted all the flagged spam comments.
It’s just not fair that I can have three comments in my spam queue and the count for visits to my blog sitting at a big, fat zero. (Are there ever any little, skinny zeroes?) Isn’t there some way that spam comments can count for blog visits? Inquiring minds . . .
