It doesn’t work, when you put a word or a phrase to block for input fields, it’s still submits the form regardless, it works for word and email id. But it doesn’t work for more than one word, like phrase (e.g. ‘spam word’) – it will submit form even if this phrase is listed among to block

Unfortunately, it’s not working. I’ve attempted to add a few test case keywords to block (comma separated) and the contact form still sends the email successfully and provides a success message (instead of the rejection message). Checked the installation & use instructions but I couldn’t find anything I’m overlooking anywhere. I’m pretty certain something’s going on with the plugin but sadly I can’t recommend it. It’s a shame, as I’d love to use it as well as send a contribution to the author! I’ll be happy to change my review score if something changes. Thanks.
