    22> Akismet is hardly the only thing in WP core that flunks in this respect.
    3 The difference to all that other stuff is, that Akismet is a commercial product, plus has the privacy issues on top of all that. This combination of these two aspects with Akismet is the problem here, I was pointing out above. In Germany for example, only a very very small minority of sites are considered private (b/c of what I wrote above), so the majority of site owners has to pay (which I have no problem with!). So, to avoid discussions and confusions, therefore I am suggestion to not bundle Akismet in the WordPress download package.
