I know Gulshan for a long time and I really appreciate his work. I was happy when he created this amazing plugin. But this review is completely honest, not because I know him. I installed this plugin on one of my blogs for testing and then decide whether to use it on others or not. I must say that it works like a charm, very lightweight and easy to install. It keeps SPAM comments away from blogs. Just install it once and forget. Thanks, Gulshan brother for creating this amazing plugin. Ravi Dixit 🙂

In fact, I really forgot about spam comments. Now I do not have to go to the comments section and check again, that no spam comments came. So now there is no hassle to delete, just keep publishing content and enjoy happy blogging 😎.
