Okay, I've finally switched the spam control on the site from Akismet to Mollom. I've been annoyed at the fact that posted comments are ALWAYS put into the Akismet pending queue, even though the number of spam comments has been incredibly low (count 'em, two hands).
Since people I don't know (hi, everyone!) are posting comments, I'd hate for the process to be frustrating for them.
Maybe Mom will start posting comments more.
