Unexpected Interlude: Spam!

Suddenly this month, my popularity has skyrocketed – or at least, my popularity with spam bots has skyrocketed.  We are only halfway through November, and I’ve already gotten more spam comments than the last six months combined!
Spam over time

Thankfully, I’ve got the Akismet plugin for my website, so I don’t need to worry about a horde of bots posting spam comments about North Face jackets, website SEO, and other nonsensical babble.

I do wonder though, where did this mob of bots come from?  How did I trigger this onslaught of useless and irrelevant comments?

On a semi-related note, it would be awesome if I got a lot of spam comments on this post.  It would be most ironic.
