Disabled Akismet Anti Comment Spam Plugin

After using Akismet for over a week, I have disabled it on my blog. Yes, Akismet is NOT good enough to convince me of using it permanently.

Akismet did its job well. It filtered spam comments and trackbacks, while some unrecognized spams went into the moderation queue.

But, it can become better…

Slight False Positives — In the first few days, Akismet did have a few false positives, but it went well recently.

Does not show the content of filtered spam — Akismet does not show the content of filtered comments and trackbacks. It is hard to find false positives in the list without knowing the content.

Not perfect — Maybe the Akismet database is still new. Some spams were not filter by Akisme, but went into the WordPress comment moderation queue, and I had to manually mark them as spam.

My two cents

Akismet is good, but it needs to collect more spam data. Currently, I am using the combination of Bad Behavior and Spam Karma 2.

Read the Spam Karma 2 review.

If it is possible to submit Spam Karma 2’s spam data to the Akismet server, I would like to contribute mine.

akismet, anti spam, spam
