Slowed my website to an unnacceptable level
By , for WP 4.0

After running this plugin for a few months, I found that spam had decreased to almost zero - which was great.

However, the big problem was that it slowed down my site loading times very significantly. I don't know if it is this plugin's fault or a conflict with something else, but site speed became unacceptable.

Having uninstalled the plugin, I'm back to getting dozens of bogus registrations every day (Akismet catches most of the spam comments), but I would rather than than a website which runs far too slowly.

Works but the price went nuts
By , for WP 3.9.2

This plugin works, and in test period, it does seem to take out almost all spam comments. I'm not sure about how many spam registrations were prevented.
First it costed 5 dollars, then 8, now 16 USD. Will it be 32 dollars in a couple of months?

Plugin is good and if you want to keep spam level low, it's a nice plugin, but comes with a price. for someone with profitable site it may be a good choice, but there are free alternatives. You might need to get two plugins that will do the same, but in the end price counts and 16 USD is a bit too much for casual bloggers.

no Spam - No Stats..

Man muss sich auf deren Seite einloggen um mal eine bescheidene Statistik zu erhalten. Akismet ist da denk ich genauso effektiv, liefert aber etwas mehr Infos direkt im Backend! Spam und Kommentare werden auf diesen Weg - so denk ich grad - wohl eh immer auf fremde Server übertragen. Ruhe hat man aber wohl mit dem Plugin
