Upgraded from 1.7.2 to 1.8.1 this week and noticed spam starting to get through on the sites comments.

I have the akismet module enabled and this was happily blocking spam until the upgrade.

Looking in the comments section of the Admin dashboard there no longer appears to be the option to mark comments as spam. So I assume something has gone a miss with recognising the spam filtering is enabled.

I've tried disabling and re-enabling the Anti-spam and Akisment Anti-spam filter modules, but can still not see the option to mark items as spam, and spam is still getting through.

Any ideas on what I should check?

Ignore me - had I bothered to search the forum properly I would have discovered that I'd had a similar issue when upgrading last time......

Implemented the outstanding Pull request again and now the Spam filter is firing as expected.
