The latest one is a “mod” (they’€™re called that) for one of the best open source forums out there made by Per Soderlind (of ImageManager fame – a favourite of mine). PunBB is the name of the, er, forum, and now you can fight spam there as well.
It’€™s nice to see Akismet’€™s branching out. The fight against spam isn’€™t just in your inbox and on your blog ‘€“ it’€™s everywhere and the more trouble the spammers have to go through the better for everybody else. Go get them!
