I'm using the latest version of wp-blacklist and its working great for me. I
havne't had any spam come through. I get lots of messages daily of new
comments followed up by emails "comment deleted". I haven't had any real
comments accidentally deleted, and it has caught 100% of the spam emails.
Right now, I wouldn't change/add anything.
