I’m not sure about you but I utilize Akismet for every single blog that I’ve every published for – it’s certainly not 100% fool-proof and perfect as “ham,” false positives, and missed spam.
A typical question that I get from users and blog owners alike is what exactly is “ham”. Do you know?
For the uninitiated, here’s your primer
Spam most people know; it’s the unwanted commercial comments on their blogs.
Ham is its counterpart or legitimate comments.
Thought you knew, right?
I’m curious though as to what other WP Daily fans use to fight spam – are you using something other than Akismet? How’s it working for you and what is your justification?
Leave some thoughts and links to other spam-fighting plugins for our community to peruse. Defend vigorously (if you want).
