Askimet is a service hosted at which use traind bayesian filters and other measure to categorize comments as spam or not spam. User can find  the Akismet plug-in for WordPress or one of the third party Akismet implementations

What is bad  is that there is currently no Joomla! implementation for Askimet, until now! I will deliver shortly a new component, which act  one more time as a framework, and let 3rd party components integrate Askimet in their code. OpenComment will be the first Joomla! plugin to use that new possibility!

Askimet statistics:

  • 543,878,439 spams caught so far
  • 1,544,713 so far today
  • 94% of all comments are spam
