My blog must be getting noticed by the bots. When I first started writing I had more posts than attempted spam comments. Then for a while I was at parity. I would write something new and I would see another spamy comment in the quarantine area. Now they are starting to kick into overdrive and have greatly eclipsed the number of posts I have. Luckily the WordPress tools and plugins are great and seem to catch them all. So there is that to be thankful for.
