Akismet for Drupal works great

Since “spam.module”: got no 4.7 port, I’ve been using the “badbehavior”: module to deal with comment spammers. It worked great until recently. When I started to have to delete the spams daily again, I know things are not right.

It’s a breeze to set up (easier than badbehavior) and dealt with the common cases right away. (better than with spam.module, where you had to train it yourself or pre-load huge training database) First I thought it can’t deal with the “empty spam”: case, but after 2 days of training it has since caught every single on of them.

And Chris’s a happy man gain.

P.S. The _empty_ spam seems quite a rare case, but happens on “other platform”: as well. I’m not sure what this strange case will lead to, but I’m glad I’m not part of it now.
