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.
It took many months using this plugin and it's best to block all spam comments, great job.
Thanks so much!
I've been trying several spam filter plugins, and this looked good...but it ended it it was blocking all my users. No good.
Very Simple plugin. :)
