Bad Behavior

Bad Behavior prevents spammers from ever delivering their junk, and in many cases, from ever reading your site in the first place.

I came back
By , for WP 3.9.1

After the problems with Googlebots, I decided to test other plugins. But it seems I did not find the best solution for the moment... So I went back to Bad Behavior - wiht Cookies for comments in complement.

Works great! Installed for a week and already blocked over 600 attempts from comment spammers, referrer spammers, email harvesters, login bots, and other blacklisted IP's.

Keeps blocking waterfox
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin will effectively block any visitors using waterfox (and possibly others).

makes me happy
By , for WP 3.7.1

Bad Behavior has reliably reduced the amount of comment spam I get on every site I have used it on. Nothing's perfect, but this plugin has been much more effective than most for me.

I almost always configure it with my Project Honeypot API key.

Very useful
By , for WP 3.8.1

I've been using Bad Behavior for more than a year. Very useful, it really block suspicious activities. For example, you'll be blocked if you're visiting the site using TOR or blaklisted proxies. But it alone is not powerful enough to blocks all the spams, you should also install antispam plugin. My recommendation is NoSpamNX plugin.

Bad Behavior + NoSpamNX = spamfree

Have been using it for a couple years and works really good, especially if you have any forms that need to filled out... stops almost all bots from accessing them!

Works well with Better WP Security plugin as well.
