    Have the same problem in a similar context.
    I could try other captcha plugins but what I appreciate in Really Simple Captcha is the small size, ideal in places such as footer forms.

    Thank you,
    Marco

    Hi

    Yep I am in the same boat – 16 in 3 days to be precise. Is there anyway to make Real Simple Captcha harder for the spammers?

    Captchas never work longer term. See http://blackwidows.co.uk/blog/?s=captcha

    If you can suggest a viable alternative that integrates seamlessly with Contact Form 7….

    For comments, what Ipstenu said, For CF7, use the Q&A option and change the question(s) at frequent intervals. Things like “What color is a red dress” or “Is fire hot or cold” usually work pretty well.

    Hi

    Apologies for the confusion but I realised last night it wasn’t my contact page with Real Simple Captcha as this page was not the target for the spammers. I disabled the captcha plugin in question and I installed Spam Free WordPress plugin which is easy under Genesis. So far has kept the spammers out of my comments.
