Comment spam is an issue for everyone. With this plugin though, that issue fades away. I highly recommend it!
The best anti-spam i ever seen!
Nothing to configure and it works.
Thanks a lot.
I use this plugin on all of my sites.
Just install and activate.
I rarely receive any spam. Maybe one spam comment per week.
Plugin does the job great. I remember deactivating it for 6 hours and my spam comment count was more than 50 while deactivated.
Excellent plugin. Works perfectly. No settings or work required.
Over a few months, I ended up with over two thousand comments as "ping-back." I'm not familiar with these. I turned off ping-back for now. Perhaps this hole has been addressed but I don't know. All I know is that I need to get a bunch of garbage out of my comments database as they act as a DOS because you need to scroll through several pages of "ping back" comments with nonsense in the text, before you could get to the page's comment form.
After Akismet caught hundreds of junk comments every day for weeks on end I turned off guest comments. After a short break I turned comments back on and within hours the deluge started again. My spam folder was overflowing!
In the day and a half since installing this plugin - ZERO spam comments caught by Akismet and NO SPAM on the blog!!
Thank you for this great (and tiny) plugin.
UPDATE: I logged the first 1,000 comments blocked. I went through the log and there was not one single false positive. Akismet (and the blog) has yet to see its first spam comment too.
I can breath again... Spam is taken care off.
nice plug in, but it has a catcha below the post comment button... and if i am having a problem with it, so will other people - in other words - i write a comment - click on 'post comment' cos i havent seen the "current ye@r and then a box with 4.1 in it..." below ir, and then it gives me the error and i feel awful and go back, to resend... go figure i must put 2015 into the box - even though "current ye@r" is spelt with an "@' symbol and its not clear.
could you advise me. i thought there wouldnt be a catcha, but there is. ? i mean i dont mind catchas if they are in an obvious place and very simple.
please let me know, thank you. joan
This is a MUST HAVE plugin. Can't live without it if you accept comments on your site.
