10,000 spam comments

Carting out the spamA bit of an editorial note on a not-so-happy milestone.

We officially launched More than a living roughly 8 months ago. Today, we have received our 10,000th spam comment.

To put that in context, that’s:

  • Roughly 27 to 1 for spam to actual comments
  • Just shy of 50 spam comments for every post
  • About 40 spam comments per day
