You Really Need Akismet On Your Blog!

My blog will be in terrible mess without Akismet.
What spam filtering plugin are you using?

Any plugin that can enable the Capcha when people want to comment?

What other security features are essential?

Thanks.

    To date I've only really used Aksimet with my blogs and generally have no problems. There was an occasion where I took just over a month to update one of my blogs to the latest version of Wordpress and got nearly 4000 spam comments within that time. For that reason I highly recommend Aksimet and ALWAYS keeping up to date on your wordpress installations even if you don't post to some of them as regularly as others.

    Keeping up with wordpress installations? Don't you have to ftp them? Sounds really hard to do and long if you have 30 or so blogs, as I do. Is that really the way to do it? About time it was on autopilot.
