Akismet did update Wordpress sites yesterday, but just before the update, I found one bizarre spam message in my inbox, shown above. It was odd how it referred to topics I have blogged about (like the Minnesota Orchestra). I don’t really see the point of it. There were some spammy links at the bottom. It's hard to imagine how this could make anyone money.
I couldn’t get Wordpress to pull up the action boxes normally. I was able to get rid of it by scanning all comments for spam. Very odd.
