Akismet, I thank you

“Spam! anoying e-mail that is both unsolicited by the recipient and sent in substantively identical form to many recipients.” Thanks Akismet for their great Anti Spam …now no more unsolicited comments on my web . Recently, Blog Herald’s Abe Olandres wrote “Are We Betting Our Blogs on Akismet?” and he’s right.

“Most of us running WordPress practically rely on Akismet to combat spam and according to its overall stats, 93% of all comments are spam (the real figures would be a bit higher than that). Today alone, there are close to 2 million spam being filtered out by Akismet. But what if Akismet fails again and the next time would be more disastrous? Thousands upon thousands of comments to either manually moderate, delete or flag as spam. That task could take hours and maybe even days especially for blog networks with dozens or hundreds of blogs to maintain. ”

So I must say that this plug-in is Rock! if you’re using wordpress activate this plug-in.
