As of today:

“Akismet has caught 347 spam for you since you first installed it.”

That’s since 11/29/2007. Akismet has YET to miscategorize a comment as spam, and it has missed a single spam comment. All I had to do was click “this is spam” and it’s cleaned up.

The only other anti-spam product I’ve seen to perform this well is the IronPort mail system at a client. 130,000 or so attempts / day, 1 spam / day in the entire company queue, and no users complaining about spam in 5 months.

Akismet, Ironport, my hat is off to you both.
