As stumbled upon through the Akismet blog, Jesper Rønn-Jensen is planning to completely disable his spam filters on December 15. While that may sound a bit crazy, it’s an interesting experiment to see just how much time tools such as Akismet saves you every day.
So, on December 15, which is thankfully a Saturday, I’ll be turning off all spam filters on my blog, namely Akismet and Bad Behavior. As the article also suggests, I’ll also be disabling DoFollow so Google won’t get confused. I guess I’ll prepare by adding my spam queue to my bookmarks bar.
