Using Net::HandlerSocket, here are some fun numbers for a single connection (open & close).

Improving WordPress Performance with Basic MySQL Maintenance

If your blog is anything like mine, the vast majority of comments are spam. Most blogs have at least a 50% ratio of spam-to-valid comments, and Pablowe has a 99.4% ratio (which is probably why there are so many Anti-Spam plugins for WordPress).
