Blocking everybody is not what I had in mind
By , for WP 4.0

Installed this -- tested it with Contact Form 7. Sure, it blocks spam -- it blocks every single submission, so of course no spam will get through.

Broken with Burpsuite Repeat feature.

Yesterday I proved that Keypic doesn't work. Admin deleted all the proof posts, so, thats ok, I'll run it again and prove that Keypic doesn't protect against:
- repeat attack
- Amazon mturk workers
Also... it allows posting with 3 sec delay, this is absurd... and doesn't even check if the e-mail is valid, neither if the domain is valid. WTF?
This is a joke protection. ReCaptcha sucks hard because it's even hard for humans to go through, but Keypic sucks most just because it simply doesn't work :| :|

Catches My Own Comments
By ,

Cannot obtain the API key to activate it even on registering. The plugins website shows my site as a user despite actually not being.

Someone should clear this up I think.

The plugin seems to catch my own comments. They vanish. I have no idea how many visitors may have submitted comments thinking they are being held for moderation simply because I activated this plugin.

Contact me at http://www.csv2post.com (the address stated as a user) if you feel any of the above is not the case or has changed and I will be happy to consider changing my review.
