I still get a lot of spam,
Maybe is not working for me as i have a different theme modified.
Howeve the ideea is great.
It works and you don't have to do anything. Just install and activate and the spam stops.
This plugin really solve my comment spam problem. With akismet, I am getting about 2-3 spam per day. With this, so far, I got zero spam
We run http://www.TheTravelingTwosome.com as a WordPress Site. As you can imagine, being the home base website for all of our activities from our TV Show to our book publications, this website has a very high volume of traffic. Unfortunately, it also produced nearly 1,500 spam comments per day. Managing these comments was becoming a full time job. We were looking for "the perfect" comment spam solution and THIS PLUGIN HAS BEEN IT! The user sees no difference in the comment form (no captcha, etc.) and we have (so far) received ZERO spam comments since implementing this plugin! I believe this is because of the logical method Anti-Spam uses in ensuring you are not bombarded with spam comments. A brilliant idea in combating comment spam, this plugin practically guarantees a spam free website!
One of my blogs - a personal one with few followers or traffic - started getting about 10 spam comments a day and I got fed up with deleting them. I added this and although it's only been a day, no spam has come through. Long may it continue!
A dozen wordpress installations and i was snowed under with spam comments. Now I have zero :big smile:
Well, I must compliment the developer of this plug in. I was earlier using Captcha (maths) & SI Captcha. The bots just walked through them. There was a literal flood of spam. In desperation, I tried this plug-in and it seems to have stopped the bots dead in their tracks.
While I used to get a flood of spam comments earlier, I have none now.
Let's hope the good times last long (at least till the bots figure out how to circumvent this one).
On a side note, I am unable to see any settings for the plug-in under Dashboard >> Settings. I am using the latest version of WP. Is there a bug?
I have tested it for about 2 weeks. This plugin reduce the splog/comment spam. I just receive only 1 spam. Better than before.
Recommend to use.

After days of playing with other anti-spam plugins that failed to stop all the spam getting through, I came upon Anti-spam.
Loaded the plugin.
All spam stopped.
I'm always hesitant to download newer plugins since the bugs are often not totally worked out, but after struggling to find a solution to the insane amount of spam the site I run was getting, I came across this plugin.
I've tried lots of anti spam plugins, and most recently had been using AntiSpam Bee for several months. It worked pretty well in the beginning, but it also had a bad habit of tossing lots of good comments in the spam pile and after a while it was also missing hundreds of obviously spammy comments.
Lots of searching brought me to this plugin and even though there wasn't a long description like most plugins, I gave it a try. More than a month later there is still NO spam. For years, even the best plugins resulted in some spam getting through, but this free plugin does what the others fail to do...it totally stops it.
I set it to email me for the first several weeks every time a spam comment was blocked, just to make sure it wasn't also blocking good comments. Not a single good comment was blocked, but hundreds of spammers were. My fingers are crossed that the bad guys don't figure out a way to defeat this if it becomes popular enough to be a real threat to them. For now though, LetsBeWild.com remains spam free!
