    Um, is Akismet working? I did a test comment (after logging out of WordPress) with the following text "By c1alis cheap. Get h a r d now!" It's a variation on spam I've received before. I've activated the plugin and entered my API key, but this comment still get's through. Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong?

    Are you logged in as an admin or author when you post the comment?

    Nope, logged out.

    Well, they have caught "19,681 [spams] so far today", so I would assume that it is working. Just wait until a real spam comes along and see if Akismet catches it.
