Spam Karma 2 works fine ... but what we have with wordpress is multiple 
plugins competing with Spam Karma instead of multiple plugins working as 
SK-plugins ... right? I rewrote the Akismet plugin, so it can be used 
with Spam Karma ... others don't do that.

If wordpress had an universal anti-spam plugin interface (letting 
multiple plugins judge a comment, weight these decisions and than flag 
it as either spam or ham or moderate) in the core, rewriting wouldn't be 
neccessary and there would be some development on the anti-spam front 
(Spam Karma had no update for ages now) ...
