Visible decrease in spam since using cloudflare

A few months ago, I decided to use cloudflare for my website. Cloudflare acts as a reverse proxy and blocks many internet attacks such as comment spam in blogs and many “bad” bot crawlers.
In addition, I use Akismet to block the rest of the spam. Since using Cloudflare, the amount of spam that Akismet is handling in decreasing gradually every month.
This image shows the amount of spam that was handled in the last seven months.
