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

Great

The only plugin that worked on the theme i'm using! It's not google captcha, but it does the job!

Fantastic

It really helped to greatly reduce spam comments.

yes and no

I have been using this plugin for quite some time now and it prevents a lot of SPAM comments to be submitted - down from 10+/day to perhaps 1 every second week.

However, it does not prevent SPAM user registrations - at all. 10 new hotmail-users every day, I would be flattered if it were real persons...

Love this Plugin

Works fantastically well.

WARNING: Don't use this plugin on your login page!

WARNING!

If you use this plugin on your login page BEWARE. It will eventually crap out and prevent you from logging in. Your only recourse is to delete the Plugin Folder via FTP.

In addition it does not appear to block spam that effectively anyway. The developer continues to blame plugin conflicts, which could be true. But this is the second time its happend to me.
