Have you noticed? The spam-bots are out in full force these days. Even the very best spam filters are getting overwhelmed from time to time and not successfully sorting spam from legitimate comments. Happily, Akismet has provided a way to recheck the comment queue for spam, thus usually halving the workload involved in sorting and approving comments on your website.
If you have a website hosted by Paradux Media Group and/or Akismet installed on your site, this video will show you how to access the function and get it to recheck your pending comments for spam.
