Akismet is the hero we need!
By , for WP 4.4.1

Our silent guardian, ever on the watch. Akismet recently started picking up membership signups from BuddyPress on our site, dogsyyc.ca. Once clarified with Akismet tech staff, I didn't mind this. It told me that it was doing a little more than just keeping out the riff raff from that comments forms. That's why I like Akismet, it's virtually set it and forget it.

And Akismet's staff were great helping me figure out what was going on here. Sure, it didn't turn out to be a problem, but I received at least one update per day until we did clear it up.

Akismet should be on your list of essential WordPress startup procedures.

Just works

Saves me hours of work

I use this plugin on all of the websites I setup and it's never failed me. It might miss one or two spam comments, but ultimately it will save you hours of dealing with spam. Thanks for writing this great plugin.

Spam Saver Supremo

For a very small annual fee, Askimet protects my blog from those thousands of annoying and often offensive spam comments.
The time saved in having to delete them is alone worth the price.

Akismet on the job 7/24/365 since 2012

I have been using akismet on three blogs since 2012. Have not seen any issues or false positives. I check my akismet logs from time to time and delete the spam it has accumulated. Could not imagine running without their spam checks - would be a real pain to manually remove all the spam (some well intentioned) that would accumulate.

So bad
By , for WP 4.4

whenever I use it have a nightmare about problem with it keeps not letting me log in so I just delete it and then install a better one like Wangguard I am just amazed why they would put a plugin that sucks so much as a starter plugin in wordpress a really bad idea hope this is a real wakeup call needed for the creator of this so bad plugin
