I have this plugin on my site, after trying many other plugins to stop spam users and spam post without success - I found this plugin that works!

This plugin stop all new spam/bot users and posts - But when I try to create a new account the Answer to Security question always wrong! says: It says, 6-3 = I enter 3 then it aleart wrong answer!

Is there anyone has this issue?

I can't change what 'Security Question' should be. That would be the only setting I would like to change, and maybe change the difficulty of the sum.

But it does what it should do, fight bots.

Great for stopping spamers

I created this plugin when I was sick of having to delete spam accounts from my BuddyPress site. I had tried BuddyPress Humanity, but I kept having to go into the settings and change the question and answer. This seemed rather pointless, as I was just assigning a random math question. I hope you enjoy my plugin!
