    Do we need to worry about being banned by akismet?

    How many site are really using this service?

    Do the site that don't use akismet out number the ones who do?

    it does come with wordpress installs by default so.. tho you have to get an api key to actually use it.

    as long as you dont over do it, im sure you will have nothing to worry about.

    When commenting, use clever comments rather than comments that look like spam.

    You need to worry about akismet bans. Most WP sites use Akismet and if we talk about blogs which are not spammed by thousands of viagra links than more than 90% use them.
