    Sorry for my bigginer English...
    I have big problem with spam in my website. But it is not a common problem! In addition to ordinary spam, I have a problem in recent days with a large avalanche spam attacks. All atacks save akismet, but it is heavy load to server. Look at this screen: https://plus.google.com/photos/108269453578187886435/albums/posts/5639641469429019986. It is terrible, because time between spams is very short. The only common cause is website (http://www.facebook.com/,http://www.google.com/,http://www.bing.com/ or http://www.yahoo.com/). I don't know what to do about it. Please help me... Now I have solved this problem follows: http://podpora.endora.cz/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=3583#p18736 but it is not good! :(

    I would suggest installing this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nospamnx/ instead of using Akismet.

    It works great. After you install it and activate it, try to post a comment while you are logged in. If you can post a comment without any problems, then it is all good. In the setting, you should choose "Block" and then you won't have to worry about having pages and pages of spam.
