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. :)
Simple to install, nothing to do to use it. A great protection for a wordpress blog
UPDATE: Ah, I missed the fact that this is for comment spam only which explains why I was having no luck blocking registration spam.
<strike>Well I wish I was having as much luck as others who have been leaving raving reviews but still lots of spam coming through. And am I missing something? I can't find any admin interface for this plugin or any dashboard report that it's on, working, catching anything at all. I feel like I'm inside an abandoned house, it's pitch black and there're thugs lurking outside but I can't see a thing.</strike>
I've been using this plugin for several years and I install it on all the sites I build. It just works. Since most spam is posted by bots, almost nothing actually gets through, and moderating human-generated spam isn't that onerous. I much prefer this to Akismet.
This has been a fantastic plugin! I use it on all of my clients WordPress sites!!!!!! Thank you!
