Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet Web service to see if they look like spam or not.
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.
Trapped five of my own internal pingbacks as spam, did not react to an external spam attack at all.
Stopped plugin in a minute
This thing stops comment spam. If your WordPress site doesn't have comment spam yet, don't worry, it will. This plugin is great!
Stops comment spam
Totally worth every penny. I don't know what happened but within a week my wordpress site was hit with over 3,000 spam comments. Installed Akismet, paid the price and it eliminated all of them in seconds.
I had nearly 100,000 spam comments on my site (I just ignored them). A friend suggestsed I installed this and after a few hours it cleared them all out!
Now I can actually use comments on my blog, yay!
My site has only been up for a week and Akismet has already caught many spam attempts. Very easy to set up and use!
