Block Spam Comments with Akismet

Spam emails and spam comments are the bane of my online life. Spam email has good filters like “Spamfighter” which I use and fits both Outlook and Thnuderbird. And now we have good filters for spam comments too.

The usual spam filter that bloggers use is called “Akismet”. It is a made up word and one that quite few folks stumble over. The “A” at the beginning means automatic because after all if it was manual there’s no point! The “kismet” at the end is a Persian / Urdu word meaning fate or destiny. It is the fate and destiny for spam comments to end up in the trash folder and akismet does that for you with high efficiency.
