Akismet really works

Two weeks after I disovered and integrated CFAkismet, my spam tally stands at 1, with no false positives. Before I added it in, I was deleting 100+ spam comments per day.

Akismet, the comment spam solution created by the people who brought the world WordPress, is an awesome concept: it works spectacularly well, and is not anywhere near as invasive as CAPTCHA routines. Shame that everytime I type the name I spell it wrong. Heartily recommended!

  1. It doesn’t sound like you need to, but there is another CF based anti-spam lib called cfformprotect from Jake Munson.


    It uses a few cool techniques to quarantine spam but also used akismet (like Brandon’s you need an API key).
