Appalling
By , for WP 3.5.1

My old Captcha plug-in broke so I installed this one as an alternative. Annoyingly I went from getting a dozen or so spam registrations per day to getting hundreds. This plug-in attracted spammers rather than kept them out - almost as though that was the purpose it was designed for.

Far from me making a donation to the developers, I'm expecting them to chuck me a few bucks to compensate me for the time it's going to take to delete all these spammers I've now got in my MailChimp database.

Doesn't prevent spammer to register - Broken
By , for WP 3.7.1

The captcha can be broken by robots that register to my wordpress installation and try to publish articles.

WARNING: Don't use this plugin on your login page!
By ,

WARNING!

If you use this plugin on your login page BEWARE. It will eventually crap out and prevent you from logging in. Your only recourse is to delete the Plugin Folder via FTP.

In addition it does not appear to block spam that effectively anyway. The developer continues to blame plugin conflicts, which could be true. But this is the second time its happend to me.

Doesn't work when a social media login plugin is activated
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin gave me so many problems because it couldn't work with my social media login plugin on my site. There is no way I can turn off my social media login plugin just because SI Captcha cant work when its on. So i had to look for another plugin instead.

Not what it says it does
By , for WP 3.5

I downloaded this one thinking it was the exact fit for my issues of SO many spam registrations, BUT it didn't stop anything. The very next day I had even more spam registrations. I think this thing does not stop the spam registrations like it says it does.

Inundated with Spam
By , for WP 3.4.2

In the last two weeks my site has been overwhelmed with shopping site spam using this plugin. It simply doesn't work anymore for me. I've deactivated it and installed another plugin.
