I ran Wordpress for over 8 months on my website. In that time I received over 24,000 spam comments. In about the first half of that timeframe I would receive between 5 and 40 a day. By the eighth month, I deleted and uninstalled Wordpress from my site. I was receiving nearly 600 spam comments a day. About 23,000 of those SPAM comments were posted onto a single page! The page with the next most SPAM posts had about 240 illegitimate comments, followed by another page with about 70 comments. Many other pages had 5 or less SPAM comments attributed to them.
