Am new here, but being kept clean
By , for WP 4.4.1

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

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

Akismet, as always, 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
By , for WP 4.4

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.
