Google Blogger Vs Google Mail Anti-spam Engine

I am really amused and surprised on the weak anti-spam implementation of Blogger. If you had been used to emailing with Google or Google Apps you would for sure be with me to appreciate a strong wave of Spam filters which sometimes even engulfs even bona fide messages in a false-positive gesture.

The newly launched feature of Google Blogger is spam comments. I see a good number of spam comments are letting in as 'good' inspite of me reporting them repeatedly as spammer. I wouldn't call those viagra and medicinal herbs as spam but those from the online flower shops of India and travel outlets in India  posting weird messages to unrelated posts are spam as well. Akismet does capture them perfect so why not Google?
