Excellent!
By , for WP 4.3

Akismet is fantastic and 100% effective at catching spam comments!

Although Akismet automatically deletes the most offensive spam, I would like a configurable option to also have it automatically delete any comments it believes is spam to save me the extra step of clicking the Empty Spam button. With 100's of spam comments each day there's no way I'm going to look for a non-spam comment and always just click the Empty Spam button.

It just works

Nothing further to add, the plugin just works great!

Essential Plugin for any WordPress Site
By , for WP 4.3

Simply put, I don't run any site without installing and configuring Akismet first. This is the most essential WordPress plugin around. Even better, Akismet not only catch spam on WordPress sites, but the system can work on website systems as well.

Nice job, Automattic! And keep up the good work, Dan!

Spam gone, just like that. Big relief not to be bothered with the lousy crap that flows into one's site.

Worth every cent.
