Spam Karma is a great plugin, but it's outdated and there are much
better plugins available to do the same job.

Akismet + Bad Behavior is a great combo.  Stop the spam before it gets
to you, then the spam that does get through, gets caught by Akismet.
I don't really see a need for Spam Karma anymore.
