Moreover, WordPress 2.x bundles Akismet for comment spam filtering.
Since upgrading from WP 1.x, I've only had one spam that got to the
moderation queue in the first place. I've got a low traffic, seldom
updated blog, but for months now I've been getting half-a-dozen blog
spams per day (and basically zero legit comments). Since upgrading, the
spam is still coming in at the same rate but I never see it any more
unless I manually go check the spam queue. I also I haven't noticed any
false positives, though that might be more likely to come up if I was
getting more ham comments.
In any case, I've been happy with both Akismet & WordPress. Yes, it's
PHP [hack! spit!] and yes it depends on MySQL, but setup was dirt simple
and it's been very easy to manage ever since installing it.
DO NOT LEAVE IT IS NOT REAL
