It might be more inviting to the less technical user to start with a generalised and less technical overview, to warm up them up before we get to the meat of it. It could be inserted before your technical description. Change it as you see fit (as it sounds like me) but something like;
cite: Philip – A simple to use plugin that stops automated spam. Install and forget, and any automated spam targeting your native WordPress comments is immediately terminated, and never gets written to your WP database. Automated spam will never show up in your spam queue. Ever.
Professional spammers use programs to automate their spamming. The ‘Block Comment Spam Bots’ (BCSB) plugin counter-targets their process, nipping it in the bud.
As no legitimate user will use the professional spammer’s automated process which relies on cURL and WGET commands, real users will never notice the BCSB plugin at work. There are no CAPTCHAS for your visitors to interact with.
On the admin side, there are no blacklists, special keys (like Askimet), or overloaded spam queues.
Install the plugin and that’s it. Invisible, to you and your visitors. The only change your notice, in your admin area, is that your list of new comments now has a green check next to them. That way you know that comment was made on your website and was not bypassed by hacking spammers connecting directly to your server.
All that remains is comments made by real people, and while real people can spam, it takes them time and effort. The amount of spam from real people is a lot more manageable than the tsunami from automated spammers, saving you time to concentrate on the important things in life, like your readers, and making connections.
We’ve tested it on multiple websites and it wipes out automated spam completely. If it doesn’t on your site, please let us know.

Or something like that. Also I’d throw on your company logo as the thumbnail for branding.
