Akismet service checks new comments for spam content. In addition, blog and forum administrators or moderators can perform further checks and mark a comment as spam or ham. Ham is content that is wrongfully marked as spam and needs to be published.
The ICommentUpdatingEvent interface fires every time an administrator edits the properties of a comment or changes its status. That is, when an administrator marks a comment as spam, the ICommentUpdatingEvent event is fired and the comments service sends a message to Akismet for missed spam or ham content. Akismet stores this information in its database for future monitoring of comments.
