I am a new WordPress user, and I hate spam. ;) I have Askimet activated and have my key inserted, but I'd like to stop spam before it ever gets there through something like captcha or some such thing.
The amount of plugins for this are overwhelming. What's considered the best spam protection, within the community? By asking, I can narrow down to a few plugins and go from there. I tried a search in the forum, but I can't seem to sort by date, so a lot of the results were outdated.
Thanks for input!
