Appalling
By , for WP 3.5.1

My old Captcha plug-in broke so I installed this one as an alternative. Annoyingly I went from getting a dozen or so spam registrations per day to getting hundreds. This plug-in attracted spammers rather than kept them out - almost as though that was the purpose it was designed for.

Far from me making a donation to the developers, I'm expecting them to chuck me a few bucks to compensate me for the time it's going to take to delete all these spammers I've now got in my MailChimp database.

Worked for a while but not anymore

Worked for a while but not anymore, now a robot creates ~10 users a day :(

Doesn't prevent spammer to register - Broken

The captcha can be broken by robots that register to my wordpress installation and try to publish articles.

Works

Works, easy to use if you want to use it on all your comments, forms, etc. I only use it for my login form as I sue another for comments and such. But it was great to have the choice to just use it for my login. With several bloggers having access I need to know there is another level of security besides them using a too simplistic password.

Didn't really work for me

I installed the plugin, it runs on my website, but i still get about half a dozen spam comments a day :( off to try something else

It works, its free, and supports BuddyPress!

I have the latest WordPress with the latest BuddyPress and I really needed a Captcha system to stop all these spam bot registrations that I was constantly removing. I tried a bunch of different Captcha plugins. Some didn't work in BuddyPress, some broke my pages, others seemed to do nothing at all. But this plugin right here did the job for me. No fuss. It integrated nicely with the BuddyPress registration/etc. Has enough configuration options to rival some pay plugins. If you want to donate money, this guy deserves it. This plugin stopped the spam bot registrations almost completely and made my member management so much easier. I'm grateful for true open source developers.

Small, simple and works without scamming you for your e-mail etc

This is one of the few CAPTCA plugins that doesn't scam you for your e-mail by demanding registration, additional library downloads and other nonsense.

Thank you
