Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet web service to see if they look like spam or not.
Without the plugin, my sites would be swarmed with spam. It's annoying how much spam WP sites get, but I'm thankful Akismet helps. Even though I haven't found a better spam blocker, I still feel like Akismet can improve.
Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!
Works great, easy to use.
The process for obtaining an API key is more than a little convoluted.
The code sometimes produces messages when WP_DEBUG is true.
Not sure why Jetpack hijacks the Akismet admin menu items.
Not sure how effective the Auto delete function is.
The numbers don't add up!
