I haven't yet tried using Akismet because I'm fairly happy w. SK2. But I'd like to find out whether Akismet covers features I'd like to see which SK2 doesn't have.
I find the need to ban individuals who aren't necessarily spammers, but rather trolls. Sk2 does allow me to ban their IP addresses, but this is imperfect.
I was wondering whether Akismet allows you to ban based on comment author name &/or e mail address? I have trolls who always use the same author name &/or e mail so this feature would be helpful.
