    Rich Pedley: […] is akismet even active here?

    I was under the impression it was active around bbPress.org I why, why not, if it didn’t play well together then it’s the ideal opportunity to fix it! :) I’m happy to offer my services around here to help clean-up any SPAM that’s kicking about!

    It’s active, but it’s a lot harder to calculate spam on a registered and activated user account.

    What can be done to prevent this? It’s not a good advertisement for bbPress. One of the main problems with all the other forum software is their inability to tackle spam. WIth Akismet we should have a significant advantage.

    I don’t know a lot about Akismet, but in this case I feel it should overlook the fact people are registered. A lot of this is blatant spam that I’d be surprised to see get past Akismet protection on blog comments. It’s like it’s giving registered people a free pass to post whatever they like – why should it let someone post 10 topics in a row? You can guarantee this is not legitimate posting behaviour.
