For anyone that owns a blog, how many spam comments do you get per day?
I've been starting to get around 5-10 a day now because we allow comments from non-registered users and without any captcha. What are some of the weirdest comments you've received?
I got the following this morning on an article about why MyBB is the perfect forum software -
I was recommended this website by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my trouble. You are incredible! Thanks!

I'm getting around 10-20 per day. What's awful is I linked my blog's email to my personal email so I get notifications on my phone nonstop.
The weirdest was one of the spam 'hacked' messages you normally get in your email. But it was sent as a blog comment. It said that they knew and I quote "the naughty things I be doing on my compoter and if you don't send me 8 bitcoins to xxxxxx in 48 hours I will send thes to all family you own"
It's gotten so bad now that they're just making accounts with their url in the name. User: www.yourwebsite.com has registered to your website.
Touch wood, I haven't had any spam posts on my forum yet.
I've had a few spammers / bots get through the registration process, but they're dealt with pretty swiftly.
I haven't failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.
