I'm not sure if I'm ahead or behind the curve here (or even if I'm on the right course), but I've been using WP-SpamFree on my WPMU site, and I've loved it.  I've not had a single bit of spam get through, even for moderation, since I installed it last April.
I have had a few people complain about error messages since the last version update of the plugin a couple of weeks ago, but when I suggested they try it in Firefox instead of IE, they've not had problems.

Hi all,

I'm just wondering what other institutions are using for their blog
comment spam protection; Are you paying for Akismet? Paying for
something else? Or using one or more of the free plugins?

Also, there's a debate raging here over whether all blogs should use the
same basic theme or all the blogs can look different (I'm in the looking
different camp, blogs should have individual personality IMO). Any
similar debates happened elsewhere? What was the outcome?
