Description

Sometimes my members get a lot of message spam. Is it possible to include akismet into the message system.

Also daily I get new members (spammers). Can you may include there akismet, too?

For me is not a good idea to add the private message to Akismet because are "Private message", or you are asking about mentions?

For protect the registration page you have some plugins like:

WangGuard -> http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wangguard
SI Captcha -> http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/si-captcha-for-wordpress/
Ban Hammer -> http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ban-hammer/
WP-Hashcash -> http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-hashcash/

For me the best one is WangGuard, but is my baby ;)

Akismet might not be a bad way to try to mitigate this, but I agree there are other ways to cut users off at the source. Closing as wontfix.
