How to protect Joomla! 3.x from spam?

To protect your Joomla! 3.x application from unwanted messages, use the Akismet component for Joomla! 3.x (there are versions for both Joomla! 3.x 1.0.x and 1.5.x). This component is based on the Automattic Kismet (Akismet) project, which is dedicated to fighting spam.

The component is installed like any other Joomla! 3.x component. Once you install Akismet4Joomla! 3.x, you can configure it from your Joomla! 3.x admin area > Components > Akismet. To use Akismet, you will need a WordPress.com API Key. Akismet is a project largely directed towards WordPress, hence why to use it you would need an active WordPress.com account and an API key obtained there as well.
