If you upgraded to Akismet 2.2, you likely noticed a cool new feature: Akismet stats. We’ve now released Akismet 2.2.1, which includes a few bug fixes.
Akismet stats track your comment metrics, including missed spam, false positives (Akismet thought it was spam, but you disagreed), and Yummy Pie, which displays your ham vs. spam count in a nifty pie chart.
What’s ham? The good stuff. Delicious, legitimate comments. Spam is the non-legitimate filler that Akismet excels at blocking.
We’ve also made significant backend changes to speed up Akismet’s response time. If you think a comment is spam (or ham), the system will now adapt instantly to your feedback — a major improvement over the old adaptation time, which could take a few days.
