Akismet For Free! It never stopped being free…


Ok, so — in an obvious effort to generate some extra income for Akismet, they changed their signup screen and hidden the free account in plain sight.

Can’t really blame them for wanting to produce some additional income from this awesome service, but I really hate the way they did it.  Instead of asking people to pitch in by suggesting a donation, they used a little UI trick to hide the free signup & donation form right under the 3 paying options.
