That is the number of comments that were pending approval this morning.
While I would like to think that we are just that popular, the truth is that 100% of them were spam.
Every few days, we have been deleting thousands upon thousands of spam comments. I don’t know how these automated comments work, but it is the biggest pain in the butt. I changed the settings on comments, requiring the comments to be approved before they show up on the website and annoy everyone else. However, sifting through thousands of comments to find your much-appreciated words is exhaustingly time-consuming.
Therefore, if you are leaving a comment, please DO NOT include a website or email in the comment form. I have blacklisted any comment that includes either of these. Thank you for helping us save time and sanity :)
