It works and stops a LOT of spam :). Thank you!
I would be interested in buying this extension for a conventional website, not just for WordPress!

Simple, effective and easy, but even more effective with some small changes
By , for WP 3.8

After one of our clients became the focus of some very heavy comment spamming (100,000s of attempted comment posts per day), even with the simple "captcha" plugin. This plugin really is dead simple to setup, completely unnoticed by normal users (except for those with no javascript) and stops a very large percentage of spammers. If you are getting hit hard and want to stop even more... a few very small changes make this plugin even better.

Out of the box, potential spam is still stored to the DB in while the "user" is shown the no javascript support message, but marked as spam. Commenting out the line that saves comments when showing that message significantly very significantly reduced the load on our servers.

There also appear to be some scripted spammers out there that know about this plugin, changing the field name and/or changing the key generation algorithm (like appending an md5 hash of the client's ip address to the existing key) stopped all of those.

Perhaps future versions could have those tricks as configuration options?
