Sick of Akismet? Try Defensio

w00t! For the past three weeks, I’ve been private beta-testing the spam-filtering WordPress plugin, Defensio, built by some peeps from Montreal. Today, their site goes live.

What’s great about this plugin is that it actually displays the percentage chance of any comment being spam, so the process of filtering is significantly more transparent and interesting to the user. Geeks will probably find it more interesting than Akismet, the current default.

So if you’re looking to try an alternative to Akismet, go to their site and poke around. Maybe you’ll find something you like; I did. 🙂
