This plugin does not work - tons of spam coming anyway. Despite the security settings of additional fields like.

No settings do not help in this case

Great idea, doesn't work
By , for WP 3.9.2

I love the idea of not having to employ a CAPTCHA, but only discovered it was not working only after two friends tweeted me today that they were unable to leave comments. The plugin (V1.5.5) was the culprit. Moreover, 473 spamments were queued up by bots that circumvented the plugin. Sigh.

Does not work, no check box.

Just installed this but it does not display a checkbox in the latest version of WP. Will this plugin be updated any time soon?

Missed checking the stars, I give this a 1 star right now, NOT 5 star... cannot change that now!

No longer works

Ever since I updated, the box doesn't appear on posts and therefore all comments are blocked. (commenters get an error) Had to deactivate.

Another Defense Against Spammer
By , for WP 3.8.1

Who here has ever said "gee I sure love getting spam comments on my website/site blog"?

Right. No one has ever said that. Spam is super annoying, and while Akismet is pretty good at blocking spam comments from being approved G.A.S.P is a great second line of defense against spammers and spambots. It's easy to install and it's easy to use. Making people read a captcha phrase or solve a math quiz can be annoying (especially when the captcha phrase is hard to decipher, like is that a g or is that a q sometimes you just don't know).

G.A.S.P is simple plugin for people to use. They just have to check a box. No fuss. It works. End story.

Best Comment Spam Killer
By , for WP 3.8.1

I have been using Growmap for the past 3 years. Every spam protection plugin was a disaster before Growmap.

This plugin is a life saver to protect you from all of the comment spam you can receive on your site.

Plus, the plugin is smoother and more light weight than Disqus and other comment systems.

Not Working Enymore - a Lot of SPAM the Last Several Months and it Increases.

I tested every option - No result at all.

It was such a good plugin.

Now it is Useless :(

Good spam blocker
By , for WP 3.6.1

This is a easy to use spam blocker for both admins and visitors but i think the protection level can be improved. I am waiting for improving it. Thanks a lot for your good job.
