I am looking for ppl's advices/opinions as to an effective SPAM filter. What's your favorite, why, etc?
Also, here is a question about Spam Karma:
I used Spam Karma for over a year, and it was just wonderful. However in the last few weeks it has started blocking off comments from friends who have then emailed me about it - and there was definitely nothing wrong in their comments.
There are in particular 2 friends who get systematically knocked back if Spam Karma is activated, but as soon as I de-activate it, their comments make it fine.
I have never touched a single setting of Spam Karma - it looks way over the top for my ignorant self. So I am puzzled as to why it used to let these 2 friends in just fine and it's now blocking them off systematically.
Should I uninstall it then reinstall it? Any other suggestion to make it behave properly again? And if not, any other good anti-SPAM plug-ins you'd recommend?
