I just had my first actual spam comment (correctly held in the spam queue) since re-opening them. The number blocked by Akismet (and therefore not even hitting the spam queue) isn't rising very quickly so I think I'm still operating under the radar of the bots. Hopefully it'll stay that way.

    I have opened comments quite a while ago and have had only good experiences so far. Akismet so far has caught everything and haven't regretted my decision. Still it feels commenting on Blogs is not as common anymore as it used to be.

    That's good to hear. Commenting definitely isn't as popular as it used to be and we have the social networks to thank for that. Hopefully, we can start to reverse that trend a bit.
