[Plugin: Akismet] Akismet inserts hidden text

  • I’ve just noticed that Akismet inserts a hidden form field by wrapping it in p tags with display set to none.

    <p style="display: none;"><input type="hidden" id="akismet_comment_nonce" name="akismet_comment_nonce" value="6036a63c2f" /></p>

    This breaks my HTML validation, and more importantly violates Googles guidelines to not include hidden text…

    I don’t want to lose Akismet’s great spam fighting capabilities, however the hidden text is a little worrisome…

    Any thoughts?
