Blocking spam with WP-SpamFree

WP-SpamFree is the plugin that I use for automatic filtering of spam.

So far there’s only like 5 spams that went past out of the 1000+ filtered ones, which is a 0.5% false negative rate.  Pretty good I’d say.  Of course a 0.5% false negative rate’s not good for sites that get thousands of comments per day, but I’m pretty sure it would suit the needs of most WP installations out there 😉
