Great Plug in and support
By ,

Have had this plugin on 3 sites for a few years and it have always delivered as advertized. And the few times that I had issues they were always dealt with promptly and friendly.

Strong Spam Blocker
By , for WP 3.6.1

"Spam Free WordPress" is really powerful and its a real Spam Free plugin. I suggest it to all webmasters who want to get rid of spam and spammers.

What happened?
By , for WP 3.5.1

I LOVED this plug-in. I am new to web site development, so I have been trying out free versions of plugins before purchasing. I updated Spam Free WordPress recently, and now it isn't working. And when I went to get support, I found that my username and password no longer work. I was planning to add this to my plug-in purchases, but now I am unsure...

This Plugin Saves Lives
By ,

I had over 20k spam trackbacks on a site, I couldn't get rid of them. I used disqus and couldn't disable it because it's tied into a lot of things. In any case, this plugin did the trick and continues to work when other plugins don't.

The license key is a bit annoying but whatever, it's free and it's worth it.

Works very well
By , for WP 3.5.1

We are using the plugin on a number of sites (more than 50) both single installs of WordPress and multisite. It just works and stops most spam. I have not seen a single false flagging.

No Spam Since I Installed It!
By , for WP 3.5.1

I had one site that got 3+ spam comments a day. 2 weeks after installing this plugin and not a single spam comment. Other than paying some service to block spam, this plugin is a great alternative.

I agree, the need to enter personal information to activate it is pretty silly. But, the developer has their reasons, I guess. I'm not complaining as long as it works and it's free.

Amazing! Spam is just gone!
By , for WP 3.4.2

I cannot believe that this plugin just has reviews about the "privacy" issue.
It just works amazingly well!

I used to get like 20 spam comments (tagged as spam, but still a mess to delete) everyday, they are gone now :) And I'm still getting the good ones :D

Would love to know what's the secret!
