    do you actually go into spam queue and manually review and decide which one to keep and which one to delete. or do you rely on the automated system.

    on a side note i use Akismat + NoSpamNX to protect my blog from spammers

    whats your best bet against spam protection.

    I use Akismet on my blog... It catches 99.9% of the spam. All other comments I manually review and decide whether to allow the comment, delete it, or flag it as spam.

    Before enabling akismet spam was becoming a problem... but since, I rarely get comments from spammers. Most of my blogs comments end up being displayed.

    I'm using auto-approve with WP-Spam free plugin which is working quite well. Akismet deletes too many legitimate comments. WP-Spam free takes care of most of the bots. So all I have to do is to delete the manual generated spam comments. I'm pretty lenient on the comments but the bogus comments get deleted.

    I rarely check spam comments, only a few times a month.

    Talking about spam comments, what is spam for you? is a comment spam if someone did a comment and write a keyword as his name, but drop an interesting comment that contributes to the conversation.

    Or a real name but just saying "great post you did a good job!"

    some of the traits of spam comments.

    comment can be easily found verbatim on many blogs.
    comment irrelevent to current context
    comment with keyword as name and matter very general and not talking directly about article.
    and off course comments with more then 2 links which doesn't relate to article.

    Off topic comments with even 1 links which doesn't relate to the blog post is spam. But it's nice to give a break once in a while.

    I receive many comments in one of my blogs. Akismet is on for sure but its never accurate, so when the spam queue goes above 30, i just scroll to see the user's names, if i see a real name i read the comment to decide if its spam or not.

    Its because of spam that I do not allow comments on my blog. I disabled comments by default, and the templates are edited so the comments section have been removed.

    Besides my blog, I also run a forum. When I post something on my blog, its linked back to a forum thread. If people want to post comments, they can sign up on the forum and post them there.

    I use Askimet for on my blog and I empty the spam queue every day(without manual review) and than manually review all comments which have passed the Askimet protection.
