Akismet Setup

One of the cooler features of Wordpress 2.0 is supposed to be the Akismet plugin for spam filtering. The last couple of days must have put me on all the spam target lists. I just cleared out about 150 spam comments over the last three hours, and don’t really feel like having to do that too often. So I turned on the Akismet plugin to see how that works out. I already had a Wordpress.com account (required for the API key), so setup was easy. Take that Cialis hawking freaks!!
