Does not work, no check box.
By , for WP 3.9.1

Just installed this but it does not display a checkbox in the latest version of WP. Will this plugin be updated any time soon?

Missed checking the stars, I give this a 1 star right now, NOT 5 star... cannot change that now!

No longer works
By , for WP 1.5.5

Ever since I updated, the box doesn't appear on posts and therefore all comments are blocked. (commenters get an error) Had to deactivate.

Another Defense Against Spammer
By , for WP 3.8.1

Who here has ever said "gee I sure love getting spam comments on my website/site blog"?

Right. No one has ever said that. Spam is super annoying, and while Akismet is pretty good at blocking spam comments from being approved G.A.S.P is a great second line of defense against spammers and spambots. It's easy to install and it's easy to use. Making people read a captcha phrase or solve a math quiz can be annoying (especially when the captcha phrase is hard to decipher, like is that a g or is that a q sometimes you just don't know).

G.A.S.P is simple plugin for people to use. They just have to check a box. No fuss. It works. End story.

Best Comment Spam Killer
By , for WP 3.8.1

I have been using Growmap for the past 3 years. Every spam protection plugin was a disaster before Growmap.

This plugin is a life saver to protect you from all of the comment spam you can receive on your site.

Plus, the plugin is smoother and more light weight than Disqus and other comment systems.

Good spam blocker
By , for WP 3.6.1

This is a easy to use spam blocker for both admins and visitors but i think the protection level can be improved. I am waiting for improving it. Thanks a lot for your good job.

Does exactly what it promises and no interference with other plugins.

Only issue is that browsers without JavaScript can't leave any comments on the blog.

GASP Is not blocking SPAM comments anymore.
By , for WP 3.6

GASP Is not blocking SPAM comments anymore.

It worked for a number of months, but in recent weeks the SPAM comments are increasing. Seven (7) this morning in only 12 hours from last eve.

Yes I changed the checkbox name - no change.

Simple and works great
By , for WP 3.6

I had lots of issues with other plugins that added an extra field regular commenters wouldn't see. The idea was that spammers accessing comments through a back door would fill in that field and immediately be identified as spammers. But all those caused issues for my real audience who wanted to comment. This plugin solved that by requiring legit commenters to identify themselves (easily) as legitimate. Sure, spammers who just troll sites and manually comment can get through, but that's the problem with spammers, isn't it? There's no single way to block them all.

The easiest and quickest way to cut down on comment spam. Works great.
