The Question2Answer Akismet Plugin will check questions, answers and comments for spam. If spam is detected, it will be queued for moderation.
Requirements : Q2A 1.5.4 – PHP 5.x – cURL PHP extension
Current Version : 1.0 Q2A 1.5.4
Download Link : Q2A-Akismet-Plugin.zip
** Q2A 1.6 Update **
Since Q2A 1.6 is fast approaching, I’ve updated my plugin to fully support the new version. While I was at it, I went ahead and added a new “Moderate questions, answers and comments that contain links” option. When enabled, this will further protect your Q2A site from spammers. (Big thanks to VdoubleE for all the beta testing!)

To install the Q2A Akismet plugin, create a folder called akismet-spam-filter in your qa-plugin directory and copy the qa-plugin.php, qa-akismet.php and akismet.class.php in to that folder. This plugin requires a Akismet API key. If you do not have one, you will need to sign up for a free API key. For non-business personal sites, choose the ‘Personal’ plan.
To activate the plugin, head over to Admin / Plugins and enter in your API key. The plugin also offers an option to only use the Akismet spam filter for users with less than XX points.
I plan to add additional options (in the near future) that will highlight detected spam content in your ‘Moderate’ section, as well as adding “spam” and “ham” buttons on content pages.
