This plugin paid
By , for WP 4.5

I very hate services what not tell about real price from start. You look same scammers.

After activation, Akismet request get API key from they own website. You need go to website, register for going to page for get this key. And after you create this account, you see page with prices from 0 (for non commercial use) to 50$, and if see more is up to 300$ price can find on this website.

Non commercial use how is it? In description you wrote "Keys are free for personal blogs", hmm. Personal blogs actualy often have commercial use also. If I have advertising on my website, is already commercial use, actually.

So bad

whenever I use it have a nightmare about problem with it keeps not letting me log in so I just delete it and then install a better one like Wangguard I am just amazed why they would put a plugin that sucks so much as a starter plugin in wordpress a really bad idea hope this is a real wakeup call needed for the creator of this so bad plugin

WTF
By , for WP 4.3.1

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??

Whoah, killed my site
By , for WP 4.0

Just upgrade to the latest version of Akismet (wordpress already updated). Been running fine since April. Newest Akistmet release (4.0?) killed my site. Been trying for 30 minutes to get it to load (IIS restart, failed Akistmet plugin install removed, etc).

Gonna be a long night I think. :(
