With Akismet Auntie Spam I can view 16 to 18 spam comments per screen compared to 3 to 5 spam comments per screen without it. It greatly reduces the time and effort to check my akismet spam inbox for incorrectly marked spam.

  • Works with WordPress / WordPress Multi-user
    eg: wordpress.com, edublogs.org, blogsome.com
  • Fetches all of your spam comments and display them on one page.
  • Sorts spammers by the amount of spam they have left.
  • Shows only the first line of spam, so less time is spent scrolling.
  • Completely hide obvious spam.
  • Checks for new version of script every two weeks.
