    If WordPress Core adds Akismet I’ll get really excited.

    Dealing with comment spam is what’s always been needed and making it a paid plugin is holding WordPress.org back.

    Don’t get me wrong, It’s a fantastic making gallery widgets and syntax highlighting part of core.

      Spam protection is plugin territory, and there a many plugins far better than Akismet at combating spam.

      In fact akismet is plain dangerous as it gives false positives.

    To clarify, the Press This button is removed if you’re running 4.9 and do not have the separate plugin. If you do have the new Press This plugin, it’ll keep chugging along just fine.
