(I've personally implemented Akismet on my (still to be made public) Travel Forum, while for the Wikka project a team member is busy implementing Bad Behavior. Wikis have recently become more and more targets of spammers, and we're feeling the crush on our own project website, too (where I implemented a few simple but reasonably effective anti-spam measures as well).
