The system relies on behaviors that are consistent from one blog to another. I'm not convinced that adding forums to the mix would work well, at least in the beginning, simply because the content won't be the same.

Comments and other content submitted to our Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
