Stats on June’s deleted blog comments
In the interests of openness, we have compiled statistics for the posts we have deleted from the blog last month, June 2007, broken down according to person and type of comment. We have only listed those who had three or more comments deleted. There was no one with two comments deleted, and 12 with just one comment deleted.
The figures do not perfectly represent what appears on the blog as comments that are made to a deleted comment also do not appear on the site, so while the responding comment may have been perfectly reasonable, it will not appear.
In total the site received 220 comments in June, 16 were automatically removed by spam software, and we have deleted 21, so just under 10 percent of them. This is an increase on last month, but less than the month before. Most of the comments deleted were spam; the RegisterFly issue continued to provide a trickle of abusive comments.
The stats are given in tables below:
