Excellent - it is that simple

I saw some ratings listed as 1 and after reading their complaints I realized the issues they were having were not plugin related - silly noobs!

Anyway... I use multiple instances of Akismet on a Multisite install, some paid and some not, the result is awesome!

Thanks Automattic once again for supporting the internet is such an epic way!

Very occasionally, it just seems to stop working for about an hour. Then I really know what a good job it is doing the rest of the time!!

I switched my website to WordPress due to all the spam I found in my replies. am very happy with the job Akismet does and am glad it is doing the work rather than me..

The best plugin anyone must have if you host a word-press on hosting. I have tried many settings on this plugin and it works great! Never had any issues with it so far. Love you for this. [link removed]

Amazing soon as I setup a site I put this on straight away. If I don't I start getting crappy spam within a few days. Is really amazing the amount of crap this catches and even after having several hundred thousand spams caught I've not had something that isn't spam in the spam notifications. Altough obviously it doesn't catch everything but 99.99% of it is does.

Must have!

Only stopped my own comments

Trapped five of my own internal pingbacks as spam, did not react to an external spam attack at all.
