99% of the registrations I get are spambots even with Spam Master. Items I put on the block list are allowed to register anyway.
You can add addresses, domnains or ip to your personal protection list but bots still can register.
I installed Spam Master today to try to get rid of a few spam users that were registering each day.
After I installed the plugin, I got HUNDREDS of spam users trying to register.
I am totally convinced that this is scam, they send you more spam so that you pay for the full version.
Installed it over a week ago, if anything I'm getting more spam now than I used to! Maybe there's something wrong with my settings but I can't imagine what it would be, I've been through them all.
I'm using Free Protection.
I installed the plugin on a Network platform.
I actived the plugin as Network and settings are avalaible - Tah's good because centralized.
BUT, unable to set key-words on Personalized words... Nugged :(
Also, I actived the plugin only on a blog.
BUT, I don't have rights to accede to settings (I am Super admin) - Bugged :(
The author learned me that the plugin is not network so I reajust my rating.
I hate SPAM (who doesn't). Does an excellent job of blocking nuisance posts and registrations. Just wish it was less expensive to get the pro version. :(
After having gone through the doc and doing my very best to set this up, spam didn't change at all. I gave it two weeks and continued to get 5-100 spam comments a day - most of which were from spinners that still had the usual word options and repeated phrases in them - the stuff most other spam catchers block. I had high hopes, but it just didn't work for my site at all. Thanks anyway :)
I have been looking for a plugin that allowed me to block throw away domain registrations and manage all of the users I currently have on our site. Of alllllllll the plugins I have tried, NONE have compared to Spam Master. Not only was I able to SUCCESSFULLY block the throw away domains from registering (other plugins claim to do this but none worked), I am also able to view all of my existing registered users and I was able to find and delete a few that were not authorized.
Thank you TechGasp for a truly excellent plugin that exceeded my expectations... I cannot even tell you how pleased I am with you and your product.
Since wordpress only allows me to add a single comment I will have to add my second one here...
I just wanted to say thank you for the recent improvements in your upgrade. I had a problem a couple of weeks ago with incorrect blocking of a specific domain and was wishing for a white list feature... And Voila! You guys are on it and I appreciate it. Spam Master is quite possibly the most effective wordpress plugin I have ever purchased.
I sure wish other plugin developers would take a look at your team and learn from you... You just keep being awesome and keep impressing me... thank you!
