SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam
Is SI Captcha breached or not working properly? (3 posts)

    I'm using SI Captcha, but spammers seem to know how to post spam throuth SI Captcha.

    What I thought SI Captcha did was:
    If SI Captcha founds the post is spam, the message is thrown away.
    If SI Captcha founds the post is not spam, the message is published immediately.

    BUT SI Captcha does:
    If SI Captcha founds the post is spam, the message is kept and WordPress responses code 302. I get this message too. "A new comment on the post [BLOG TITLE] is waiting for your approval", and the spam message is in the waiting box.
    If SI Captcha founds the post is not spam, the message is published immediately as I wish. WordPress responses code 302.
    If I post a message with wrong captcha, the browser shows error-page saying "ERROR: Wrong CAPTCHA". WordPress responses code 500.

    How can I throw spam away? Please give me your advice!
    For your information...

    SI captcha 2.7.6.4
    WordPress 3.5.1
    CentOS 6.4
    PHP 5.3.3
    Apache 2.2.15

    Spammers are from...
    Ukraine
    China
    Latvia
    United States

    • I think WordPress should response code 4xx for BOTH spam and posts with wrong captcha.
    • I'm not sure what causes this problem; WordPress or SI Captcha or both.
    • If possible, I would like to save spammed POST data. How can I do this easily? Any plugins?

    Thanks.
