This plugin is doing a great job of blocking spam.
I used to use AVH First Defense + MP Spam Be Gone + Akismet and was still getting 6 - 10 spam/day.
I installed this plugin and have not received any spam since. I also removed AVH and MP Spam Be Gone and still don't receive any spam. I now only use this plugin and akismet, although I guess could probably even remove akismet now too...
Legitimate commenters seem to be able to leave comments without any problems.
So far, so good. Thanks for a great plugin.
This is now installed on all of my WP sites. It works great! Just install and activate - it's good to go.
Worth donating to.
I have never rated a plugin before... and I never thought I would... but this one absolutely "wow'd" me. My poor website was inundated with so much spam that I could not physically delete it fast enough... literally: as I deleted it, more would show up. I was at my wits end, when I decided to try this plugin. All of my spam problems ended instantly, and there is NOTHING for me to do (no delete/purge/ etc), and the users of my website see and experience nothing different than before. It is truly like MAGIC!!! Download tis plugin, activate it, and forget about it and spam... no configuration, no edit, no widget, no maintenancde, NO SPAM!
This is very effective and works great in my site. Simple plugin. But very efficiant plugin.
I tried a few different anti spam, but they just move the comments to the spam folder. This one blocks them completely so no work for me. Real visitors can still comment.
This plugin is also the first plugin I have felt the urge to donate to, so I sent the author a small amount. I urge you to do the same if you find this plugin saves you from spam like it did for me. My time is valuable and each minute I spend going through spam comments is a minute I could have spent building my business. When I'm wealthy (next year?) I'll send more :)
Just an FYI- When I use the easy comment plugin in Firefox (auto fills the comment form) entry fields (e-mail, web page, etc) I get the error that a certain field should be empty. The plugin does not include other form fields so I'm not sure why this happens.
It didn't work at first until I cleared my cache also.
I'll update after a while.
I had been spammed by bots for a few weeks for Longchamp bags, and was disappointed by the fact there was no way to efficiently block keywords such as "Longchamp" (I got about 20-30 such bot comments per day) without having to manually review and delete them in the backend. Akismet does a good job at tagging comments as SPAM, but is very poor for managing them efficiently, in my opinion.
I tried a few other ways and plugins, but anti-spam did the trick! Not a SINGLE spam comment after three days of use, hats off to the developer for one of the easiest-to-use-yet-efficient wordpress-plugin out there :-)
I've been using it since December, 2012 and haven't had a single SPAM comment.
Installed it and spam stopped instantly!
Thanks to this plugin I was able to delete SI Captcha and Anti-Spam Bee, the latter of which was not working in the latest WP update.
Thumbs up for this plugin!
