  • I just installed the plugin and it seems that this is a great spam protection which really works! Thank you!

    One question: I deactivated Akismet since it did not really satisfy … There is an option to use Akismet even if your plugin is running. But I really don’t understand what makes this better??? I think, the captcha protects really by itself the spam by bots. So, why Akismet?

  • Now after the first day with your plugin activated, I see reduce of spam comments. But still there are some, sure not posted by human but bots. Is that possible? I mean, I experience using CAPTCHA at a static website with contact form. Since I have the captcha there, I experience really no more spam… How can a bot pass the captcha??? Does it help to activate Akismet while your plugin is active too???

    Hmm, I got it! I saw that the now appearing Spam comments are done with trackbacks. As I don’t want to disable trackbacks, I guess I have to live with this Spam and to sort it out by hand.
    Thanks again for the great plugin!

    I have not tried it but this plugin looks like it can stop trackback spam for when you do not want to disable trackbacks.
