Math Comment Spam Protection
Produces error on Comments if user not logged in. (1 post)

    This plugin works just fine in all but one particularly annoying circumstance: Commenting.

    When installed, the ONLY way visitors can post comments, is to be "registered" and "logged in", otherwise they will receive the following error:

    Error: Please press the back button and fill the required field for spam protection.

    (Note: Pressing the Back button would wipe out their text and force them to re-write it all over again. Annoying & unnecessary.)
    I've had this problem for what feels like years (back to WP-2.8?), but only just figured out today that this plugin was the source of my problem. Disabling it now allows anyone to comment to my blog once again.

    Such a shame. It is otherwise a great plugin, and if you only want Registered users posting, then you won't care about this bug. Otherwise works with WP-3.3.2.
