Works well by stopping a lot of spam from getting through but has a few flaws.
By , for WP 3.6.1

The plug-in needs an update badly. It does not seem to always work. I get some errors every now and then about there being duplicate methods and the file either not existing or being loaded twice (depending on what page of my site I visit). It also seems to only happen when my site gets lots of traffic. That said, when it works, it works very, very well, and it saves me a lot of comment moderation work.

This plug-in is the only one I tried that did not require an external component or API key. It was just designed to be dropped right into WordPress as a spam bot trap, and for that, it works well. If the plug-in was updated to remove the errors, I would give it 5 stars.
