I have built a site which is completely off the radar (Google can’t even find it).
DMSGuestbook has already generated a nice healthy stream of ‘white’ spam – nothing offensive, but clearly auto-publishing links for SEO reasons.
I’m not saying that DMSGuestbook is directly providing hooks to 3rd parties, but I am saying that a website that isn’t even robot-ready fills up with comments almost immediately. While I am well aware of the abundance of robot activity, this smells entirely fishy to me.
To use this plugin legitimately, you’ll need to de-spec it from what the spiders are after. Just a warning to those without PHP chops.
