Available for download:


(Don't publicize that URL just yet. I'd like to get some documentation 
up first.)

Some major updates:

* Now called Automattic Kismet, or Akismet for short
* New servers blah blah
* Requires WP.com API key
* Allows you to review caught spam, and submit false positives
* Deletes spam after 15 days (should clean out those DBs!)
* Is clearer that it submits it to a web service (Podz)
* It may need a day or so to get back to its former effectiveness (or 
lack thereof)
* Shows some stats on your dashboard

Thanks to everyone for your feedback, and Michael for the code. :)

The only thing that didn't make this version is what Eric suggested, 
where if the service is unreachable or down it'll save the comment and 
try it again when a new comment comes in.
