Spam karma 2.2 Final

Since I upgraded to WP 2.0.5, I notice an increased of spams.

Askimet has like 7 pages or 300+ spams every morning I log on to my WP dashboard.  Out of that, at least 3-4 are genuine comments.  It is a nightmare to pick out the genuine comments but I owe it to the people who commented so I had been doing de-spamming.

I tried Bad Behaviour but one of my blog reader told me she couldn’t access my blog from her office.  Meanwhile, another guy told me he couldn’t comment from Telekom dial-up line.  So, I had to ditch Bad Behaviour.

Then, the earlier Spam Karma caused my comments count to be 0 all the time even when there are comments.   So, I also had to forget it.

But I am in luck today.  Apparently, DrDave, the unknown genius has a new release which is the 2.2 FINAL (released 02/12/06). Now my comment count is working.  And you bet that if it eats away all my spam with less false positives, I am going to send DrDave my love (in the form of a donation).

Current release: 2.2 FINAL (released: 02/12/06)

1. Overview

Spam Karma 2 (SK2) is an anti-spam plugin for the WordPress blogging platform. It is meant to stop all forms of automated Blog spam effortlessly, while remaining as unobtrusive as possible to regular commenters. Spam Karma 2 is the proud successor to Spam Karma, with whom it shares most of the development ideas, but absolutely none of the code

Is this the end of spams that spans several pages long?
