Question for those who use Wordpress

I've had eight people subscribe to my blog, but they don't leave a comment. Should I assume that those are spammers? I signed up for AKismet, but I don't know if it's doing anything. How can I tell.

I wouldn't worry about it.  You should get an email notification even if a comment is auto-approved.  You might want to click through to the blogs/websites of the people who subscribed if you are suspicious just to make sure they aren't scraping the site.

Thank you, but none of these people have websites. Thank you both. that answers my question.

Brenda, I had to sign up to have my comments show on your site.  If it hadn't been you, I probably wouldn't have bothered.  I don't leave comments at sites that make it difficult to do so - not that yours is difficult, but it takes a bit more than just commenting.

Thanks Pam, I think I'll remove that feature. I don't like to sign up where it's made difficult either. It's easy enough to remove a spammer anyway.
