  1. I want to cancel akismet and get a refund because my site no longer requires it and I'm still getting charged for it.

    The blog I need help with is deberardisfitness.com.

    Oh no! This domain deberardisfitness.com expired 26 days ago!

    All free hosted WordPress.COM blogs are equipped with Akisemt and it cannot be disabled. What do you want to do about your expired domain please? http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/domain-expiration/

    All free hosted WordPress.COM blogs are equipped with Akisemt and it cannot be disabled. More to the point every time I have checked the blog if a blogger who complained about Akismet I found many spam comments had been approved on it. I no longer check because the last time I did I found 76 spams on a single post that had been approved by a blogger who refused to believe that they were what they were - spam!

  5. Aksimet is a learning engine. If you get spam that slips by Akismet then mark it as spam (do not delete it) and over time Akismet will learn it's spam.

    On the spam that Akismet catches on it takes only seconds to click "empty spam" and you don't even have to click "empty spam" if you don't want to. Akismet will maintain comments it has caught for 15 days from the time they were received, and then it will delete the comment automatically.

    You can use the Bulk Edit function (check boxes on each comment) to delete less than all the spam comments or to Un-spam more than one comment at a time. Check the box at the comment then choose the proper bulk edit command.

    The vast and overwhelming majority of all so-called information on the internet is spam. Over 80% of all so-called comments submitted to .wordpress.com blogs every day are spam. Spam comes in waves. There are human beings who get paid to post spam. There are robotic programs that post spam.

    There is no such thing as eliminating all spam but Akismet works very well. For more information please take the time to read "5 things every blogger should know about spam" on this page Akismet: How it works http://akismet.com/how/

  6. If you want to cancel your Akismet plan, please contact the Akismet team directly at http://akismet.com/contact/

    Thank you.
