WordPress Plugin Choices

This is one of those posts that you don’t care about, but will be very handy for me later. :)

### Comment Spam

* [Akismet](http://akismet.com/) Why? Because it’s bundled with WordPress, silly.
* [Challenge](http://lordchaos.dominatus.net/wordpress-plugin-challenge) I loath the idea of using a [CAPTCHA](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captcha) because of accessibility concerns. I chose Challenge over other plugins because it allows me to provide PHP eval’d questions of my own. Once the bots get smarter at reading the standard question, I can generate my own variations.

### Formatting

* [PHP Markdown](http://www.michelf.com/projects/php-markdown/) Of course, _PHP_ Markdown is only possible because of [John Grubers](http://daringfireball.net/) work building [Markdown](http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/).

### Fancy Shmancy Stuff

* [IP to Country](http://priyadi.net/archives/2005/02/25/wordpress-ip-to-country-plugin/) I still get excited when I realize that the people I am conversing with online (through forums, blogs, email, whatever) are from _all over the world_. :)
