Growmap Anti Spambot Plugin

Defeat automated spambots (even the new 'learning' bots with dynamically named hidden fields) by adding a client side generated checkbox.

Upgrade to CommentLuv Pro For More Anti-Spam Heuristics

This plugin will add a client side generated checkbox to your comment form asking users to confirm that they are not a spammer. It is a lot less trouble to click a box than it is to enter a captcha and because the box is genereated via client side javascript that bots cannot see, it should stop 99% of all automated spam bots.

A check is made that the checkbox has been checked before the comment is submitted so there's no chance that a comment will be lost if it's being submitted by legitimate human user.

To combat the new 'learning' bots, this plugin adds dynamically named fields to the comment form so each post has a differently named field and value.

You can set the maximum amount of comments a user can have in the moderation queue to protect you from comment floods (provided you haven't approved any of the spammers comments before)

*new! - prevent spambots from thinking they got links on your site by removing all links from comments that are waiting for moderation
