    Looks like Akismet is no longer free and I can't find my old API keys. Can anyone suggest some good alternatives?

    Akismet is no longer free? OMG this means scrapebox dosen't need proxies anymore for posting,since most of the people won't use akismet,there will be nothing to ban our IPs.

    Thanks for the info

    Do you guys just get a different API key for your sites or do you pay the $50/mo?

    Best option is to close comments on our blog. I did it recently.
