Calculation Doesn't Work
By , for WP 3.9.1

the plugin were asking "2 x ? = 12" I entered 3 and it let me register. Again I tried it asked me "4 + ? = 10" I entered 2 and it also let me register.

So the thing is clear here, that this plugin is not doing any calculation or validation. Please check

not bot secure
By , for WP 3.9.1

I installed this captcha on one of my sites but it just could not prevent bot registrations. I had to install another pluging to stop that. Sorry but needs to be improved.

Unfortunately cracked by bots
By , for WP 3.8.1

Unfortunately this plugin is no longer bot secure

Here are some bot/spam registrations
Username: AnneHuotelc E-mail: cravenpodium524vq51()outlook.com
Username: Manuela38Y E-mail: cervantesbshr6qi()hotmail.com
Username: RomeoSXZEvz E-mail: rusticjug784w755()outlook.com

Two to three registrations each day. I now have converted to a captcha using slightly distorted pictures all spam registrations have stopped.

For this plugin to remain useful, the text need to be replaced by pictures.

I can nolonger recommend this plugin

Increased bot activity
By , for WP 3.8

I dont know why so many people find this a good solution. I have had a really bad experience with this. The registration bots began to bombard the site more than they used to before I activated this plugin. Once i de-activated it the registration bots have ceased, probably because I am using a more effective re-catpcha.

Getting pounded
By , for WP 3.8

The registration bots are pounding my site. This plugin doesn't seem to be helping.

doesn't prevent bots from signing up
By , for WP 3.8

Sorry, but I get the same amount of fake signups after installing this plugin. Obviuosly, most bot creators have found a way to work around it.

Doesn't Work against Spam
By , for WP 3.8

Ok, I don't mean to be a party-pooper but there was a time this plugin used to work because I was using it on well over 10-15 sites, but within the last 4-5 sites I've used this on, it doesn't work at all.
I mean, yeah it stops invalid human submissions but if anything I am seeing an increase in spam comments compared to the time when I didn't have this plugin installed.

What I don't get is why are so many people so happy with it. My guess, because their sites are not generating enough traffic organically to be targeted.

Either way, I would love nothing more to rate it higher if the authors can figure out why it's not blocking anything anymore.

Hundreds of Holiday Spam Bots
By , for WP 3.7.1

I just spent half an hour deleting spambot registered users all over the 2013 Christmas break. I had seen a couple a week until the last two weeks. Good grief something broke.

Did not stop bot/spam sign-ups, at all
By , for WP 3.8

Did not stop bot/spam sign-ups, at all - we have the exact same amount of daily "bad" sign-ups as before we tried it. Gave it a few weeks as a trial - just no luck.
