    I just recently found out about a new antispam plugin for WordPress which should be out soon. It's called Defensio and can be found here: http://www.defensio.com/

    I've joined the beta testing list, so hopefully I can give it a try soon. I just wonder how it measures up to Akismet.

    So far I've used only Akismet and I've been fine, but I don't have a ton of traffic anyway. I plan to include Spam karma at some point too as my blogs grow. Thanks for all the suggestions!

    Great post. I've just added the Akismet plugin to my site. Hope it works. The last time I setup a blog with public comments, it was overrun with online prescription and adult spam.

    I've been using Spam Karma and Bad Behavior with very good results but will be giving Akismet a try as neither catch everything.

    * Spam Karma has sent 22517 comment spams straight to hell!
    * Bad Behavior has laid the smack down on 259 access attempts in just the last 7 days.

    Before these tools were in use it was insane they amount of spam I would get and the bloat my htaccess would get trying to stop blogspammers.
