    Well, I must compliment the developer of this plug in. I was earlier using Captcha (maths) & SI Captcha. The bots just walked through them. There was a literal flood of spam. In desperation, I tried this plug-in and it seems to have stopped the bots dead in their tracks.

    While I used to get a flood of spam comments earlier, I have none now.

    Let's hope the good times last long (at least till the bots figure out how to circumvent this one).

    On a side note, I am unable to see any settings for the plug-in under Dashboard >> Settings. I am using the latest version of WP. Is there a bug?

    Thank you for the great feedback, I am glad that Anti-spam plugin helped you.

    If the spammers will break thru the plugin, the plugin's algorythms will be simply changed. But firstly spammers should find out the trick and change the mechanism of spam software. :)

    There is no options page in Anti-spam plugin, and 'it is not a bug, it is feature' :) (c) Gates.
    The main idea of the plugin was to forget about spam completely. Anti-spam plugin is blocking spam silently for users and admins.
    I know, it is kinda weird and it looks like if there is no options or statistics it looks like something is missing or job is not done. But give it a try, I hope you gonna like this approach.

    p.s. At the moment there is only one option - send spam comments to admin.
