Good, but could be better
By , for WP 4.1.1

I used this for a very long time. I was getting medium traffic, and found that it was letting things through. I "topped it up" by using an extra plugin, and between both of them, I almost brought the spam down to zero.

I work on loads of sites, and recently I noticed that Akismet is getting "holier" - either that, or spam authors are getting trickier. Ironically, this coincided with when they started asking for money. :)

So I no longer use it at all, and have found other tools that seem to be nimbler at keeping up with what the spammers are doing.

That said, I think it's quite adequate for sites without heavy traffic.

Does it's job

A bit tricky to find the free API key, but it does a good job of blocking spam.

Almost perfect spam blocker

Rarely it marks as span a valid comment and it helps a lot in keeping the forum (bbPress) clear of spam.
