Akismet, the most popular WordPress anti-spam plugin, has launched a parter program geared toward developers who urge the use of Akismet among their larger clients. Akismet is free for most users, but sites which make a substantial amount of income on their own are asked to pay a small amount for the service. Given that most of these sites are built by third-party developers, designer, or consultants, the program is designed to share a percentage of the purchase with the referring individual if the referred user chooses to sign up with a paid Akismet plan.
