    Me and all my clients are being attacked with spam. Every few minutes another one comes through. Wow!!! Is this plugin still safe? How do I stop it?

    This plugin certainly isn’t causing the spam, so remains as safe as it has always been. It is a very simple plugin that attempts to stop bot-generated spam by putting a honeypot trap into the form. Honeypots are not impenetrable, and clever bots (or human spammers) can circumvent them — particularly if additional steps aren’t taken to try and make the honeypot more tempting (naming it “email” or something else that a bot would want to fill in).
