I noticed now there is this spam message thing named Askimet. Is it new? I have another account, and when I joined there was not Askimet.
I dunno how I found such an old post lol
Nope. Akismet was always the spam filter. I don't know why it didn't do anything on your original account.
Akismet (anagram for mistake ) is the spam filter that basically blocks posts that are potential spam (aka maybe posting a lot in an hour)
