    Decent Guestbook but it doesn’t have enough controls to customize the options. I’ve been using it for a couple years now but recently noticed a Huge influx of Spam comments coming in from those who are only wanting to use their website as a back link. I wish there was an option to restrict people from posting their own website. Even the ability to use a Capcha would be helpful. I hope to see an update one day with some upgrades.

    …the very first FAQ in the plugin’s documentation (https://www.justin-klein.com/projects/wp-vipergb/#faq):

    1. My guestbook is getting overloaded with spam.
    This plugin simply provides a “guestbook-like presentation” for regular WordPress comments; if you’re having problems with comment spam, I suggest trying out one of the many antispam plugins that are already available. Personally, I use a combination of Akismet, Bad Behavior, and SI CAPTCHA.

    This plugin was never meant to be a Captcha plugin or an anti-spam plugin. I find it unfortunate that you deduct “points” for this not being a different type of plugin than it is…
