    Look at what I got from GoDaddy in an email yesterday! Is this permissible:

    Sick and tired of annoying or malicious blog posts? Fight back — activate the Akismet spam filter built in to WordPress® .* All you need is an activation key from Go Daddy.
    Get your Akismet spam filter activation key at Go Daddy NOW for just $5/mo!

    Akismet is a spam shield that monitors the new comments and responses on your WordPress site, running hundreds of tests and blocking suspicious posts. This powerful filter comes pre-installed in WordPress — all you need is an activation key to start it up.

    Why put up with junk posts when you don't have to? Order your Akismet activation key for $5/mo now at Go Daddy or by calling 480-505-8821.

    Thanks as always for being a Go Daddy customer.

    Isn't this something WordPress should stop?

    Sorry for the confusion. Go Daddy is actually offering its customers easy access to the paid Akismet Commercial API key and all of the benefits that come with it. Details of the Akismet Commercial API key can be found here: http://bit.ly/4u0key Akismet has also posted an article with more information on its blog here: http://blog.akismet.com/2010/01/11/akismet-on-godaddy/

    You should receive a follow up email further explaining the offering and we've also update the information page in GoDaddy.com Hosting Connection - http://hostingconnection.godaddy.com/Application/akismet.aspx

    Regards,
    Alicia
