AkismetFilter Vs StopForumSpam

I have read some previous discussions in this forum and successfully set up the AkismetFilter to work. But what I am noticing is that StopForumSpam is checking more comments than AkismetFilter. I tried playing with the priorities but I never really understood how the priority thing works. Can somebody explain me this better?

This is the current status after 3 hours of setting up the filters

Akismet read 118, approved 6 and spammed 112. StopForumSpam read 170 approved 111 and spammed only 59. I can clearly see that lots of spam is still being approved possibly because of StopForumFilter. So do you suggest completely disabling the StopForumSpam filter?

This blog is great and I thank all the guys who worked hard to make my life easier.

They not really approving comments, it is just last in line gets less spam coming because it was blocked by other(s). More filters you have enables, less spam you should get.
