wordpress and comment spam

WordPress uses the Akismet spam filtration system to prevent spam comments from inundating blog posts. While I find it effective, lately it’s been slipping; over the last few weeks alone (most recently today), about three or four spam comments made it past the filter and into my moderation queue.

Any other WordPress bloggers experiencing an uptick of spam comments bypassing Akismet (or on the flip side, an uptick of false positives)?
