Hey,  Guru. Love your new posting style! Chetan, I am having
exactly  the same problem as that which you describe. I also
read  your  items  which explain how to  disable  everything
through  phpmyadmin  and I consider doing so myself. Even  a
CAPTCHA  filter  no longer works, after over year  of  being
highly  effective.  I threw away Spaminator quite some  time
back  and  I suggest you try Spam Karma 2. I only ever  hear
good things about SK2. Akismet likewise, but I believe these
two interfere with one another (if not totally collide).

Seems like there are conflicts with SK2 and the Automattic Akismet plugin, but why not just get the best of both worlds: http://www.sebbi.de/archives/2005/10/31/spam-karma-2-akismet-plugin-beta/

I've not used it personally, so I have no idea if it still works.

What's the world coming to when our plugins have plugins of their own? Wow.

This happens a lot at application level as well. I am aware that you are Linux-savvy, so you will know this rather well. Taking WordPress as an example, there are CMS's out there which integrate WordPress with some other 'beasts' such as Coppermine and re-distribute. What about K2, Lynceum, and Lightpress, for instance?

Then  come to consider PHP-Nuke, which contains phpBB, among
plenty  of other re-used and grossly grafted code. It's  the
beauty  of  the GPL, leading to faster development  of  more
versatile  software.  The  end-user  benefits,  as  well  as
developers  who undertake a new project, e.g. MySQL, PHP  ->
b2 -> WP.

Best wishes,
