    really helping stuff for WP bloggers. thanks

  •  Ajay

    Good Stuff, thanks for sharing.

  •  Andrew

    I want to second Antispam Bee. I run it with Akismet. I haven’t seen a single spam comment since installing it. (Still see the occasional spam trackback though.)

  •  Arshad Munir Kazmi

    I really like your commenting area.

  •  Andrew

    Hey, Thanks for listing my plugin. This is a great list. Keep up the good work!

    I must also nominate AntispamBee as an addition. Great plugin.

  •  Gerald Weber

    Good and useful list. I couldn’t see using all of these at once but there are some good ones here. I personally really dislike the use of the CAPTCHA since It often times creates a very bad users experience. I prefer bad behaviour for comment spam and of course Akismet but you’ll never catch me w/ a CAPTCHA on my site in a million years.

  •  Smashing Buzz

    i like to use most of them.

  •  Mitch

    I think that, after Askimet, I haven’t had to use any other plugin whatsoever. It’s a great tool that learns fast, and I’m happy about that.

    I’m also someone who hates captcha; I just have so many problems seeing the numbers or letters when people have those backgrounds that I often type them in wrong. Most irritating, I’d have to say.

  •  Tom Shaw

    I use a captcha free, which has gotten rid of 99.9% of spam. You just can’t fault it.

  •  Mike Milas

    Great list. I have had so many problems in the past with spam and robot comments its ridiculous. I went through so many plugins trying to find something that just worked. I currently use “Spam Free WordPress” on every one of my websites. It was the most simple, easy to use and reliable spam filler I have found. You literally install the plugin, hit activate and no more spam. I highly recommend you check this out if your struggling to find the right anti-spam plugin. Akismet for some reason always gave me problems or maybe I am just to lazy to set it up. Either way “Spam Free WordPress” has been simple, quick and always worked.
