I have a few of my own websites and I get a lot of spam comments. I end up getting overwhelmed and they pile up. I have the Akismet (default) plug-in for filtering spam comments on my wordpress sites, but when I went to upgrade it recently it said I had to pay; that's how I understood it, tell me if I'm wrong. It was confusing. It doesn't seem to keep the spam away, anyway; I have a couple thousands awaiting moderation on one site right now. Anyway, what do you folks use to filter spam on your own sites?
I guess I use my Avast! antivirus and Windows Defender.
I use "Spam Free Wordpress" plugin, it filters most of spam comments.
I will have to keep that in mind if Antispam Bee fails me at some point.
Sounds like you've got your own site, I was wondering if you could give me some input on something I'm considering. I was thinking of putting a forum on my site and maybe using Buddy Press or bbPress plug-ins to do it. I don't know if it's a hassle or at all worth it to start a forum on a site and was also wondering if Buddy Press or bbPress is good. If you have time or inclination and know about this, I'd appreciate your knowledge and experience.
I didn't install a forum on my site before, but I know that BuddyPress is used to build a social network site. bbPress and phpBB are the most popular free discussion forums scripts.

Does anyone know how to create their own web page? Is there a site that isn't that expensive that is good to use to create one? Because I am really serious about creating my own but I don't know how.

I know that several hubbers here set up separate web sites under domain names they own themselves. I would appreciate any feedback or advice on the best way to do this especially for people (like me) who aren't total techies but do have basic web experience. Which web hosting services do you...
