Akismet – The Solution to Blog Spam?

Matt, the famous creator of WordPress, has announced a new way to prevent blog spam called Akismet.

It sounds like every comment on a blog is sent to a central server, checked to make sure it isn’t spam, and then either rejected or approved. The idea sounds really interesting and worth trying out, so I just installed it here. Combined with Bad Behavior (which is still needed according to its author), this should be very interesting to watch.
