    Hi
    Does anyone know if Askimet is trustworthy when it comes to blocking spam... I mean sometimes i cant tell which is not spam and which is as it does not exactly appear to be spam. But askimet blocks it.

    Yes, it's extremely good and very widely used.

  3. Akismet is very good, but it's not perfect and spammers are getting sneakier and sneakier. I've found that at times, spammers will leave comments like this:

    Just wanted to say that your blog is marvelous and I'll be bookmarking it right now.

    come through and you have to delete them. The trick is to look at emails. If you see a weird email like yogahoou3e4y3oqu4@aol.com, it's most likely spam.

    It's annoying, but unfortunately, it's part of life.... :(
