I Kinda like it very much
By , for WP 3.9.2

Some of the plugins that I tried before promised cutting the SPAM but failed miserably to do so. I now believe that at my site [Link redacted], this plugin has served me very well.

I was getting inundated daily with spam that Captcha, modifying .htaccess etc etc did not help with - it was all going into the spam folder but I didn't want to have to wade through it all just in case a valid posting fell into it!

This plugin has silenced them all!

Want to fix your spam problem - this IS the tool to use until WordPress fixes their code!

We installed Cookies for Comments at the beginning of January. 30 days later, there are 111 spam comments in the Spam folder, and one good comment that was not marked as spam. So far 100% accuracy. Very happy!

Simple and effective!
By , for WP 3.8

This plugin is a very simple, elegant way to prevent comment spam.

It has stopped literally every spam comment attempt over the last six months.

Plus, it doesn't require any new user interaction.
No more annoying CAPTCHAs.

I highly recommend it for any WP install!

I tried several plugins that promised to cut out the spam with varying degrees of success. This plugin completely silenced all those pesky artificial comments.
