Reading in my WordPress Dashboard this morning I found a reference to Typepad antispam which is based on the Akismet code. There is a plugin for WordPress and I have now installed that and disabled Akismet again. I don’t know if they use the same spammer database but hopefully they dont, and G & J will now no longer have “issues” when they post comments.
If you want to use this instead of Akismet, you will need a typekey account (I had one already) and you will then need to use the API key you can get with that account, to fully install TP-AS.
Looking forward to testing it out 🙂
