Clean Talk Spam Plugin

This plugin saves me a lot of time because 99% of the comments were correctly marked as spams and that saved me a lot of time.
I recommend this plugin, I appreciate the low cost and high added value.
Good job.

Not free, but worth every penny
By , for WP 4.5.2

I have several websites, and a couple of months ago two of them were found by spambots. EVERY morning I woke up to find 1/3 of my inbox filled with new website registrations and inquiries, and ALL of them were spam.

I had tried Anti-Spam in the past, but like so many others, I felt cheated when I got the message that I had to start paying if I wanted to keep using it, so this time I tried several other free spam blockers, with differing levels of success. Then one of them started blocking LEGITIMATE inquiries,which I CANNOT have happen, so I gave up and decided to pay for Anti-Spam by Cleantalk.

I haven't gotten a single spam registration or email since that day and I'm getting plenty of inquiries so, as far as I know, nothing legitimate has been blocked. I'm paying $24/year so I can use it on five websites and, like I said in the title, it is absolutely worth every penny. (It's only $8/year for a single website. The time it would take me to find an alternative that works half as well would be worth more than that....)

Good pricing
By , for WP 4.5.2

There are the totally free plugins and the "pro" expensive ones. Either can be effective or clash with many other plugins and don't work too well. Cleantalk is top-of-the-range in terms of effectiveness but is priced very reasonably. As someone who charges for internet services, I applaud the pricing structure. Cons are that they sign you in for free and then disable it after a while, forcing you to buy at a higher rate. Too clever marketing - should be more transparent. Ok, the higher price is still reasonable so only 1 star off the 5!

Great plugin

Does exactly what it says it does with regular reports that you can go through if needed.

Massive security risk with our passwords!
By , for WP 4.5.2

This plugin gives you a unique URL to access your stats on their website. These stats contain all the users passwords including admin's password. Granted the unique URL is hard to guess but it is un-encrypted in my admin backend. If any one can hack into my backend or even see my computer history they can get the unique URL and get all the user's passwords!

I never read anywhere this plugin collects every password!

No thanks.

Fantastic
By , for WP 4.5.2

LOVE this Plug-in! I was getting swamped with spam emails and that has stopped. What I really like is that I can go into the CleanTalk dashboard and review the items which were blocked. Otherwise I was worried that good comments might have been blocked in error. Relief from spam and peace of mind. That's the best in my book!

Time saver

Quietly works in the background, saving loads of time manually removing spam logins. Easily worth the money.
