This plugin does exactly what is says it does. I was fearful of the work of starting and monitoring a blog and this goes a long way to easing those fears.
The free version does the job that I need, to block spam comments. I tell all my clients to turn this plugin on their WordPress websites.
Why is this silly/useless plug-in is included in every new release? I dont see the usefulness of it anyway and keep in coming up with new WP release. Maybe this plug-in developer is married to WP developer or vice versa. Its so annoying. Same as Hello Dolly.. WTF??
I've been using Akismet for a couple of years, and it does an astonishingly good job of filtering out the spam. Instead of getting several spam comments a day on my website, only about one or less a month slips through the net.
I started getting quite a bit of spam within 2 days of starting my blog - added the Akismet plugin, and no more spam. Excellent.
I've had Akismet installed on several blogs for as long as I've had them. Never had an issue and have been relieved of the nuisance and perils of many spammers. Thumbs up Akismet.
Use it on many of my blogs. Love it!
Spam was starting to pile up just 2 months after my website went live. I initiated Akismet and zero spam.
I didn't realize how awesome this was until I deactivated it for a while and the comment spam started pouring in. Incredible product. Thank you!
