A few days ago I installed WP Hashcash on a client's blog. Today I noticed that a spam comment that was posted by a bot made it through. Everything looked exactly the same as before except that this:
[WORDPRESS HASHCASH] The poster sent us ‘0 which is not a hashcash value.
was added to the bottom of the post. I do not see any options to "put the comment into moderation (default), put the comment in the akismet queue, or delete it" per the documentation. So, it seems like I'm doing something wrong.
Does Akismet have to be active in order for WP Hashcash to work? So far I do not see the benefit of using WP Hashcash.
