I’ve switched from Akismet to Defensio for my spam-stopping needs here on this blog. The change should be transparent. If anything goes wrong, like if your comments are all of a sudden getting marked as spam, you know how to contact me.
I’ve made the switch to Defensio because I’ve heard some good things about it, and decided to give it a whirl. Akismet definitely wasn’t doing the best possible job, so hopefully Defensio will fare better.
