A must for a safe site
By , for WP 4.0.10

We are using Akismet since the very beginning and it worked just fine all these years. Just a few spams easy to isolate and just that. Smooth activity free from spams!

I've only been using Akismet for about a week on my 5-month-old blog, and i'm amazed at how well it works. I've been getting often 10 or more spam comments per day, and now i don't have to spend time on the chore of trashing them all; so far i've only had two get through to the approval stage, and not a single false positive. The "empty spam folder" button is a real time-saver too!

Very good plug-in for any WordPress site

The plug-in is very good at blocking nasty spam comments. Highly recommend it to anyone new to blogging.

It's as good as a fallible Spam-Filter can possibly be.

It's understood that any spam filter has some margin of error. But I think that where this one self-reports an accuracy of 98% on my blog, this is actually an accurate estimate. Which is impressive. I think that this plugin is an essential part of my blog.

I've seen many spam filters do much worse than that.

Great plugin for comment SPAM

Does what it says it does, an oldie but goodie. And of course it's always kept current since it's one of Matt Mullenweg's plugins. ;)

Works like magic
By , for WP 4.4.1

When I got word that AreYouAHuman was discontinuing Play Through, which I'd been using for a couple of years, I poked around and realized I'd downloaded this plugin but had never activated it. Since my primary aim was to eliminate spam comments, I completed the registration process in a few minutes and activated it.

Perfect for me. Set and forget. Easy as pie. (Insert your preferred cliche here.)

Great plugin, but sometimes does not works.

Akismet has helped me a lot in my plugin journey but sometimes it blocks good comments too.
