Users of Spam Karma 2 (a WP comment spam plugin) might have noticed increases in comment spam in the last week. Dr Dave (the guy behind SK2) has written a post with a little information on this and the struggle he faces in getting on top of it. He also asks users of SK2 to consider a donation so that he can dedicate more time to fixing it. I for one am someone willing to put some money up and encourage others who want to see better tools developed to combat comment spammers to do likewise.
