Akismet updates their WordPress plugin to improve accuracy for CloudFlare enabled blogs

Akismet developers have tweeted that they have made improvements to the plugin to support blogs running on CloudFlare.

The developers said that the plugin should be able to detect spam comments more accurately for such blogs.

CloudFlare by default deliver the same IP on all hits on the blog as all the traffic is passed through their infrastructure. They provide a WordPress plugin to fix this issue. They also have a mod for Apache servers to prevent this for happening throughout the network.
