I had frustration and wasted time and had to double-post already,
before there was any discussion.  As it looks like one of us will
have frustration and wasted time anyway, we might as well have it
with discussion rather than without! ;-)

It looks like I would have to pay to edit the wiki, so please take
the suggestions previously written.

I can't explain that.  Maybe it likes you and not me... and if it's
not querying spam-like comments, it doesn't sound like it is testing
for spam at all!

I think Spam Karma 2 has been broken for many years (I've yet to see
it work, at least) and is not fit for use.  I suggest a combination of
BlogSpam.net and wp-spamfree (in a non-javascript configuration) as
better alternatives.

Hope that helps,
