    If you disable the “Linked username” field in the settings, spammers can still manage to post the form with a website turning their usernames to links to spam sites. Changing the setting for “Linked username” just prevents the form field from displaying on the screen. It would be nice if the plugin would block posts if a value is sent in this field while the “Linked username” is disabled.

    Thanks this is excellent feedback, I’ve added to the list and will try to implement in an upcoming version of the plugin.

    Just to follow up, this is implemented in the next plugin update. Should be available within the next few days or so. Thanks again @rlama.
