    After activating botblocker, at my blog, adaptistration.com, it started blocking all comments. there are no instructions on recommended settings so what do you recommend?

    A bit more info, the problems seem to occur mostly with users that have auto-fill options activated in their browser (which is probably quite a few individuals).

    Having the same issue here. All comments from public users get blocked. Fine if I post myself as admin though.

    Same here.....
    I hoped to find the solution here but the first question was 8 months ago with no resonse from the developer. Shame, I hoped this wou;d help but even the plugin wasn't updated for months.

    Is the plugin abondoned?

    For the developer... Here's a link to a page on a test site.
    http://sandbox.expertwebsupport.com/builder/2013/01/lorem-ipsum/

    While not logged in, attempt to submit a comment. You'll get the "Spam bot detected" error page.

    Config of BotBlocker is the default. Config of Settings > Discussion is "Comment author must fill out name and e-mail "

    Any suggestions? In current state, the plugin is unusable.

    Also experiencing this on Client site - all comments being blocked with the following response: ERROR: Spam bot detected. Your comment was blocked from being posted.

    Anyone find a fix for this yet? Currently plugin is unuseable.

    Same here. Pretty silly. I’ve tried different settings and nothing helps ease the blocker.
