akismet is fantastic

i have to say that since turning on askismet for blog spam filtering, life’s been great. it’s from automattic, makers of wordpress, and it’s just fantastic at dealing with all the blog spam. couldn’t be happier with it. between that & wordpress stats, automattic/wordpress.com is aggregating all the usage information from my blog & others, but it’s a fair trade for me, at least.

  1. Akismet is great. If you add the option to moderate comments only from people you haven’t approved before, it makes moderation light and ensures comment quality.The only trick I’ve seen get past Akismet is the auto-generated comments that say “Nice post”, and really are just linkes to auto-generated spamlogs.
