Great product, fair price!
I have been using this plugin since I first set up my blog site more than a dozen years ago and had completely forgotten about it. I was reminded of its existence when I started getting flooded with spam comments on my blog. It turned out that my API key for this plugin had expired and I was instructed to create an account with Akismet and pay to get an API key. However, after contacting their support, I was told there would be no charge to get a key since my website was not being used for commercial purposes.
In my opinion, the pricing policy is fair since if someone is using his website to make money, then he should be paying Akismet a fee commensurate with the income he was making.
The support I was provided was prompt and I was very happy with the resolution. Entering the API key stopped the flood of spam like magic. Things are now back to normal on my blog and I am relieved!
