    Pretty sure that's not publicly available, and in all reality, that is probably for the best since spammers could analyze it for ways to get around it.

    so even if a comment is put i spam que it does not mean it is a bad comment just some part of the comment must be bad or false i guess. or should i just delete all spam comments

    Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet web service to see if they look like spam or not.

    == Description ==

    Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet web service to see if they look like spam or not and lets you
    review the spam it catches under your blog's "Comments" admin screen.

    Want to show off how much spam Akismet has caught for you? Just put <?php akismet_counter(); ?> in your template.

    See also: [WP Stats plugin](http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/stats/).

    PS: You'll need a [WordPress.com API key](http://wordpress.com/api-keys/) to use it.
