    Oh, sorry, your quote threw me off.

    Well now I'm curious to know if the akismet integration actually works...

        It works on my forum. plus, when you have threads or posts that are spam, inline moderate them as usual, only this time select 'delete as spam', this will push them to akismet and with enough people doing this it will prevent it in the future too.

          Hmm, I'm curious as to why it's not working for Fusion...

            apparently this is (still) not an automatic function as it implies in the Vb docs.. your mods still have to 'find' the spam (via reports or noticing it) and use the inline mod tools to deal with it.

              No, some spam still gets though.

                Zachery,
                Do you know if my problem could be related to using the free API key?

                  Just copying and pasting spam content won't trigger it. It works on heuristics based on various parts of your request.

                  We send through username, post content, browser and IP address to Akismet.

                  If you want to test if its working use the username "viagra-test-123", this username is always marked as spam by Akismet.

                    Scott, thanks for this bit of info; it will come in handy for testing.

                      Nice test!

                      Ar-HAR!

                      That worked..!

                      viagra-test-123

                      was blocked..!!!!!

                      Nice one!

                      So....

                      A question..

                      Are all "Delete as spam" (and then banned) registrations sent to Akismet to join their database?

                      Or just "Delete as spam" (and then banned) registrations from forums actually using Akismet?

                      I have no data protection issues with spammers! (hang the lot of them!) Just curious...

                      Beg your pardon - I missed the 'report spam to anti spam service option' (default is set to "on") great!
