This is a damn paid plgin
By ,

This is a paid plugin without any warning or free plan.

It force you to register and pay for one year to make it work!

Do not use this, it's a scam
By ,

I was getting one or two spam comments a month and was looking to get something to weed out the spam. As soon as I registered for a key the plugin wanted me to pay for the plugin. I decided against it but they already had my website and e-mail. BIG MISTAKE I now get bombarded by spam 20 to 30 times a day. This happened as soon as I registered with this plugin. I think they do this so you purchase there plugin BE WARNED THEY ARE A SCAM AND WILL HIT YOUR SITE HARD WITH SPAM UNTIL YOU PAY FOR THERE SERVICE. I have since had to moderate all commentary and block hundreds of IP addresses. Stay away from this plugin unless you want to be hit with Hundreds of spam comments. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLUGIN YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Shouldn't even be here.
By , for WP 3.7.1

It's a scam to give you a "free" trial for a paid plugin. Shouldn't even be here.
Unable to unsubscribe from their emails once I made the mistake of signing up.
I installed this without thinking and registered "just because"

It held 2 spam comments, I clicked "check for spam" and got this

1 min ago - Akismet re-checked and caught this comment as spam
2 days ago - Akismet cleared this comment

This is the first plugin I have downloaded from WordPress.org that nags with emails to pay to keep using. Not real happy about that.

Probably going to delete it and install http://wordpress.org/plugins/stop-spammer-registrations-plugin/ like I have on my other sites.

Keep looking... this is not the plugin you want...
By ,

I installed it, created an account and there is nothing about a license key anywhere in my 'account' and no email. But there is a pricing structure for spam comments which is incredibly difficult to understand.

From what I can see, there is 5 free 'non-spam' comments a day covered. What does that mean? Well, I don't much care since I didn't get a key. Now I have to worry about spam from THEM I suppose.

No instructions to close my account. Keep looking.
