I hate spam and I hate these companies who are spamming my comments here at Melodiefabriek.
Today is the day. None of these companies will be able to leave their unwanted comments anymore.
From now on anyone must have a previously approved comment before it will be published. Most of you will have no trouble using it, only the newbies will be put on hold a little longer. I feel sorry about it, but it’s better this way. I am sure you hate spam as much as I do!

Update: I have installed Spam Karma 2. Let’s see if that protects us from stupid spam information from those total losers.
Update 2: Found the reason for the spam which was getting through since yesterday:
The stats code introduced yesterday had a bug which only triggered about 24 hours after it had launched. It kicked in for different blogs at different times, but the result was that starting sometime last night you probably started to see really obvious spam getting past your Akismet filters.
Some serious downtime for Akismet, the spam-filter-plugin I am using for a long long time in WordPress and which worked fine.
