Akismet 2.0 review

The paged navigation and search box are great, Akismet should have included them earlier!

In fact, I have not been using the Akismet plugin for over a month. The main reason was the increasing number of escaped spam comments. I switched to Spam Karma 2 (SK2) with Akismet check plugin(a plugin for a plugin). Overall, the combination of two most powerful WordPress anti-spam plugins work very well.

I tested Akismet 2.0. Many spam comments managed to escape. I was quite disappointed. I will keep it on for two more days before switching back to SK2+Akismet.
