We finally got the spam filter working again. There may have been a bit of weirdness as our slices rotated into the new egg cache. Hopefully nobody got hit too badly. I really recommend anybody with a public project to disable anonymous ticket creating/appending permissions.
At the very least get an Akismet API key you can just drop into our plugin. You can do this by making an account at WordPress.com and grabbing the API key from your user profile and just pasting it into our Akismet form in the Admin.
I wish we could afford a commercial license to provide Akismet transparently to everybody, but we can’t right now. : (
