Aggressive anti-spam plugin that eliminates comment spam, trackback spam, contact form spam and registration spam. Protects against malicious attacks.
The plugin is so great that I feel sorry for poor spammers!
This plugin uses more than 25 ways to identify the spammers, when a spammer is identified it is blacklisted so it couldn't bother you again, but as the spammers change their ip regularly, each ip remains in blacklist for a period of time, so your blacklist doesn't get bigger and bigger every day.
Each successful login causes the ip to be whitelisted so it's not likely that you get locked out of your site.
Have been using this plugin for quite a while now. Even before the previous version of it and it is the still best plugin against spam. Other plugins just didn't work as well and the the developer has spent a lot of time making sure to keep any spam that does get through, to to a minimal amount or none. Fantastic!!!
I cannot even imagine how much time this plugin has saved me. I tried many other plugins to stop spambots but this is the only one that actually worked for me.
I installed this and within hours over 300 junk stuff were blocked! It was <i>very</i> simple to install and set up and has worked perfectly since.
Thank you Keith, for saving my site (and my sight)! Very happy to see it being updated! It is certainly worth sending you a cup of coffee or two!
Best Wishes for your continued success!
I am using this plugin for a long time on my sites.
I tried deactivating it for one day as a test and received ton of spam.
This plugin works great. And after new huge update it is even better than before.
I have been using Stop Spammers for a while now and I avbsolutely love it. It stopps a lot of spam from my website(s). I also like all the new features on the latest updates. But there is one things missing from the updat... at least I have not been able to find it. And that is the wonderful feature on the old version to block certain email accounts. All those accounts I had block in the old version I have to now manually removed again. I hope this feature will come back in the next update. I really miss that.
Nicely documented + insights on what and why.
It's not about the pretty flowers in the header image.
It's about the code and this one rocks!
This plug-in is fantastic. I use it on two blogs: one gets thousands of spams per day, and the other gets dozens of spam user registrations a day.
Akismet handles the spam OK, but Stop Spammers, which I have added to Akismet, results in very little spam that I have to deal with, and that is a big plus. Also there is the satisfaction of being able to report the blighters.
On the spam registration side, the SABRE plug-in lets in dozens of registrations, and needed some help. Stop Spammers seems to have cut the registrations down to a trickle.
The author seems very responsive to suggestions. I think this is going to be a strong asset to my blogs.
Once set up .... works like a charm. No more SPAM.
I've been using this plugin for some time and had zero spammers since. The new version seems to work at least as well as the older versions.
