I have 2 plugins for spam protection Akismet and WP spamshield. Do I really need 2 and if not which 1 would be best?. These have been installed when following the certified course training so not my own choice.

SpamShield is the best for me.

I use Antispam Bee. I deactivated and deleted Akismet and SI Captcha because Antispam Bee doesn't need a captcha

WP-Spamshield is good but I am now using AntiSpam Bee as I much prefer it.

Akismet used to be great but has gone down recently and now you must pay for it I believe. I changed all my websites to WP Spamshield and much better.
