Looks OK but………..

Note I am using latest version WordPress which is not listed as compatible with this.

Its not clear if the spam stopper is meant to work on the contact form but it doesnt as far as I can tell.

Also, unlike another contact form which sends one, when the integrated one wp-spamfree is used I received 3 emails from each user. Thats spam!

There is obviously a lot of work gone into this plugin and mine shows as working properly, but it isnt unfortunately the author is no longer supporting it either.

Great concept but server load, oh-la-la

We take care of websites in the financial industry and real estate sector. As you can imagine, for years these sites were the top target of spammers. WP Spam Free stopped the spam dead in its tracks until WP Spam Free got our account suspended at our hosting company. We didn’t know that much about server load back then so just put it onto our own dedicated server. WP Spam Free very quickly taught us that greedy plugins are a real problem for server CPU.

So we coded an alternative with very low CPU. FV Antispam. We still maintain our version, including a hands on support forum.

Ended up here while trying to figure out why WP Spam Free’s twitter account died in 2011 and wanted to post an antis-spam alternative with low CPU and which is still current.
