We had a client with a huge spam problem. After installing this plugin the spam dropped by around 70%, then we used Akismet to mop up the rest.
Fantastic plugin, thanks for sharing!
We run a quite large MS network, with 8mln pageviews a month.
We used to get something like 200 spam comments a day across the entire network.
After switching to Anti-Spam were getting 1 a week.
Awesome and HIGHLY recomended
We'll purchase the PRO version just to support the developer
My site is small and with low traffic but before installing this plugin I received a few spam messages per day. Now is 0 :)
I am using this plugin for a long time. It works - definitely. If you want to solve SPAM problem in an easy way, just click on install plugins, write anti-spam in search field and active the plugin. Another job well done as futurama guys say. Thank you for this useful, simple plugin.
Recently Google Analytics was displaying a major reduction in traffic to the website. Initially I didn't know what was causing it so I did a paid Facebook campaign to drive traffic to the website. Although the results in Facebook were showing a major increase in traffic, Google Analytics was still displaying little or no traffic. When I deactivated this plugin, Google Analytics began to display traffic as normal
It is amazing how a plugin which is only 8 Kb, out performs other competitors.
Of course you do not have any option at all (except a couple modifing PHP files), nor a control panel, nor a log, nor the ability to recover deleted messages.
On the oposite, it works as advertised, silently removing spam coming from bots, in a fast, and low resource usage way.
It is not intrusive for users, and quite compatible against different configurations, browsers, and OSs. A point were other competitors lack.
I tried this out running a Genesis site. So far, so good.
Reading over the reviews, I am impressed with the author's support of the plugin.
I've been blogging for 6 years and this is the very first time I've written a review for a plugin. I felt I was doing all the right things to keep spam from coming through - paying for Akismet, high end premium security plugin, and still they were squeaking through. I really didn't want to have to go to one of those obnoxious captchas so I was trolling online trying to find a solution and only by accident found this plugin. I installed it about 2 weeks ago and in all that time now only 1 spam got through as compared to over 150 for the previous period! I'd go ahead and buy the pro version just to support the developer but I see it's sold through Envato and I had a very bad experience with them last year and will never(EVER!)buy anything through them again.
I've been using this for over a year now and had zero spam comments, so I kind of forgot about it.
Surely the mark of a great plugin.
Huge thanks to the Dev.
