Do I need Akismet plugin if I turn off Comment Section?
Nope, even if you have enabled commenting, you wont need Akismet because it is overloading our servers.
I also use Akismet even nobody are commenting in my site, and my account isn’t suspended yet
Okay, but would it not overload your servers if there are lots of spammers posting in the comment section?
I think without Akismet, the spammers will overload our resources, once they find out about our sites. And that will get us a suspended account.
So, prevention is better than cure.
I’d rather get suspended because I mess something up myself. Just not by spammers.
I just shared out my personal experience.
The best would be to stop comments and using Contact Us email method (SMTP).
I got suspended 2 times because of Akismet.
Else your wish do whatever you want.
