so i’ve abandoned any attempt at controlling the comment spam via a wordpress plugin because they all suck. akismet was supposed to be good, but i still have to wade through comments in moderation. akismet’s interface via wordpress sucks. i’d rather wade through the comments in moderation via wordpress’s normal interface, which allows me to search and mass delete on those results. so as long as you don’t use some key gambling words in your comment, you should be okay.
