    I guess it would be a good alternative to akismet (or even in addition to).

    Your code can be cleaned up and condensed considerably.

    It also could benefit from some security checks on the $_POST data being injected into the url.

    Here is an untested, condensed version with some mild security checks on the $_POST

    (there is also an alternative to curl in there for the 50% that don’t have it on their server)

    I took out some of the extended manipulation of the returned data that you didn’t need.

    I admit, I’m using the same tool (but I force all registration through WP so I run a plugin there). It’s actually used with Bad-Behavior and Akismet, since those were catching about 90% of the forum spam (and 99.99999% of the blog spam). Dunno what it is but you get more spammers able to make accounts via bbPress than WordPress.
