NO CAPTCHA Anti-Spam. Keypic checks your blogs comments against the comprehensive Keypic Web Service to see if they look like spam or not.
The content guy of our webcomic was swamped with hundreds of spam comments a day. It was nearly impossible to even pick out the good ones to clear for posting. We tried putting in one of the captcha plugins but they were a pain in the butt for some of our readers to use.
The moment we activated KeyPic, the hundreds of spam comments per day were reduced to 2 or 3. Rarely KeyPic would send a new commenter's comment to the spam folder, but that was extremely rare.
Essentially it did what we needed it to do: reduce the workload of the person moderating our comments. Thanks!
Yesterday I proved that Keypic doesn't work. Admin deleted all the proof posts, so, thats ok, I'll run it again and prove that Keypic doesn't protect against:
- repeat attack
- Amazon mturk workers
Also... it allows posting with 3 sec delay, this is absurd... and doesn't even check if the e-mail is valid, neither if the domain is valid. WTF?
This is a joke protection. ReCaptcha sucks hard because it's even hard for humans to go through, but Keypic sucks most just because it simply doesn't work :| :|
Sometimes you see solutions and immediately know they just make sense. Keypic is that.
This has captured thousands of spam messages over the past 18 months. It is simple and easy to instal and use. I just did it once then forgot about it.
Excellent service! Hope large sites will now refuse from Captcha.
Finally someone did it!
this plugin give real protection to my blog without captcha!
Amazing plugin to completely remove the concept of captchas, no more without.
This is a test review
Cannot obtain the API key to activate it even on registering. The plugins website shows my site as a user despite actually not being.
Someone should clear this up I think.
The plugin seems to catch my own comments. They vanish. I have no idea how many visitors may have submitted comments thinking they are being held for moderation simply because I activated this plugin.
Contact me at http://www.csv2post.com (the address stated as a user) if you feel any of the above is not the case or has changed and I will be happy to consider changing my review.
