Akismet Spam Protection for Any WordPress Installation on a CUNY Domain

Thanks to the terms of a licensing agreement generously made available by Automattic, the CUNY Academic Commons recently purchased a subscription to Akismet, the premier spam-prevention service for WordPress blogs, that can be shared with any WordPress installation on a cuny.edu domain. We would very much like to spread the word about the availability of this license, so please encourage anyone you know working with WordPress at CUNY to contact us to learn more.
