    Thanks for your feedback, really constructive and really helpful. It’s really rewarding to have someone that sign up to WordPress.org only to review our plugin 🙂

    And if you think that is that easy to bypass, why don’t you make yourself a better solution? This is open source and totally free 😉

    Have a nice day,
    Henrique

    @julioandrade: Before posting any more reviews, please read:

    http://chrislema.com/theres-wrong-way-give-plugin-feedback-wordpress-org/

    Poorly written reviews just reduce the effectiveness of the review system for everyone.

    I’m also curious as to what “public money” you think was wasted. As @henrique Mouta pointed out, this plugin is free, was developed, by him, for free and was freely given to the wider WordPress community. No monies – public or otherwise – were involved.

    Dear @julioandrade thank you for your review.

    But please let us know, have you at least tried the plugin before reviewing it? It seems just an uninformed rant. Please try it in your WordPress website (if you really have one), and tell us if you keep getting SPAM. We have more than 2k downloads, with a lot of positive feedback from the WP community. Every single support thread was resolved ASAP, so if you really detected a way to automatically bypass the validation system (kudos!), please let us know how did you do it. And please remember, CAPTCHA is a system to stop robots, not humans.

    As we have pointed out, we are always open to informed critique that would make us develop a better plugin for the WP platform. We would love to ear from you soon, with a more informed opinion.

    @esmi This plugin is developed by the design and multimedia unit of a public higher education school in Portugal, but released as open source (like a lot of our projects: http://wordpress.org/plugins/cas-maestro/).

    Best regards,
    Tiago Machado

    That was constructive – easy to bypass – don’t you think somebody think that out already? That’s why they invented those letters and numbers it is supposed to be random. 🙂

    esmi – public money – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Instituto_Superior_T%C3%A9cnico : top right: “Type Public school”

    What an excellent idea!

    I too am curious to see how the validation system is automatically bypassed.

    We installed this plugin a few months ago and are using it for our contact form but we continue to get a few SPAM emails per day and it looks like they are automated. Today we received 7 SPAM emails via our contact form all with the same content:

    Name: BackPage Ads Posting
    Email: zmabxdyah@gmail.com
    Subject: http://SocialAdsBlaster.com/

    Message:

    This e-mail was sent from a contact form on Appraisers Blogs (http://appraisersblogs.com)

    We get these daily and the number of SPAM is increasing. So we’ll be looking for a different plugin.
