Akismet Anti-Spam
We’ve discussed this. It’s a paid plugin. $60 per year. In 8 years, you will recapture our site tuning fee. Think about it. One plugin ROI.

We recommend substituting the free Antispam Bee plugin. It has over a half million active installs. It’s a straight forward no-nonsense plugin. But what we like even better is disabling comments completely. Some site owners don’t realize this is a possibility. It’s a relief when they can offload comments on social media. Or get rid of them completely. https://wordpress.org/plugins/antispam-bee/

Remove Akismet AntiSpam plugin with Disable Comments plugin activated.

Akisimet Anti-Spam should be deleted. You have no posts and no comments. It is not a free plugin of you have site income. This is not a free plugin for commercial sites. It is $60 per year.

Your site has one comment. We recommend disabling comments. And removing the Akismet plugin.
