Today, the 999th spam was caught by Akismet.
Akismet is aÂ wonderful anti-spamming plug-in that learns whatÂ is considered spam and what isn’t. Best of all, itÂ supports almost any application with submitted content including contact forms, forums, wiki & blog.
Ever since I start let Akismet filterÂ my blog’s comments & trackbacks, I saved myself lots of time having to delete them myself.Â However, there were times that Akismet failed to recognize spam messages that were considered new, Â but I sent them back to the moderation queue for another round of spam check (and they were eradicated). Heh, Akismet learns fast!
Currently I’m not getting enough from my sponsors to get myself a pro-blogger API key, but I hope in the near future I can contribute to theÂ development of Akismet.
Once again, thanks Akismet!
