        Net::Akismet->new(PARAM => ...);

Acceptable parameters:

KEY

The API key being verified for use with the API.

URL

The front page or home URL of the instance making the request. For a blog or wiki this would be the front page.

If verification of the key was unsuccessful new() returns undef.

check()
        $akismet->check(USER_IP => ..., COMMENT_CONTENT => ..., ...)

To be or not to be... check is meant to tell you. Give it enough details about the comment and expect 'true', 'false' or undef as a result. 'true' means spam, 'false' means not spam, undef is returned on errror in submission of the comment.

COMMENT_AUTHOR

Name of submitter.

COMMENT_AUTHOR_EMAIL

Submitter e-mail.

COMMENT_AUTHOR_URL

Submitter web page.

spam()

Reports a certain comment as spam. Accepts the same arguments as check().

In case of failed submission returns undef, otherwise - a perl-known truth.

ham()

This call is intended for the marking of false positives, things that were incorrectly marked as spam. It takes identical arguments as check() and spam().

In case of failed submission returns undef, otherwise - a perl-known truth.

NOTES ^

Although almost all comment characteristics are optional, performance can drop dramatically if you exclude certain elements. So please, supply as much comment detail as possible.
