Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet web service to see if they look like spam or not.
Plugin akisment contains a virus!
akismet.php => PHP.Shell-83
I think WordPress community has to delete this plugin from access.
A couple of days ago, all my wordpress.com links stopped working inc. akismet, jetpack and rss feeds.
In any case, my Akismet account has disappeared, that is, there's no record of it existing (I've have the same acc. since 2008). I have the awful feeling that my account has been hacked.
I've gotten zero spammy comments using this plug-in for a few months, so I'm pleased!
Since Google has upgraded it algorithms, spammers has increased their activities to primarily build links on comments. The use of Akismet has definitively filtered all the spam comments done by bots. Thank you for this great plugin. I am using this on my site and it's worth it.
The most famous WP antispam since few years and it's still working!
Never the slightest problem and that's across several different installations, no conflicts, no spam gets through. Thank you!
This weeded through 4,000 spam comments after I installed it and caught a majority of it! I literally was getting a spam comment an hour- I don't even know how many bonefied comments I sacrificed out of frustration! Be sure to pay it forward and donate if you aren't buying the professional version!
I think Akismet is great BUT sometimes you need to re-run the Check For Spam to get all the spam comments. It is not 100% automatic in that sense. BUT I really like it a lot!
We've been using Akismit forever. It really is the best.
Been working with WordPress on a few jobs the past few years. This is a nice plugin where it takes care of your concerns with spam. Good job to the programmers out there on this one!
