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. ;)

Amazing

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.

So long spam, hello Akismet!

We have used Akismet for our own websites and our clients' websites and have been really pleased. In fact, we wouldn't run a WordPress website without it. We used to get some really nasty spam, but now it is all gone.

Am new here, but being kept clean

Am a newbie and on setting up noticed folk were claiming to register which, given how new and not being promoted, seemed unlikely. Those emails have now stopped and all looks good.

Simply amazing

I've been using Akimset on my website for 5 years now and I've yet to see any spam comment get through. Thanks for the great plugin

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.
