Wangguard unreliable
By , for WP 4.0

WangGuard as a security tool is unreliable. The WangGuard servers frequently crash or are blocked as spam servers by other security tools. When the WangGuard server is working, the bulk "splogging" check almost grinds the WordPress server to a halt.

Whilst the concept is fantastic and great applaud has to be given to the designers for the idea, having an unreliable security service, that intermittently fails and allows slews of "sploggers" in while it is down, or when it is working causes such a drain of the server it creates it's own denial of service for bona-fide users is not worthy the effort of continued manual support.

Until we can see better performance and more reliable service this is a plugin I cannot recommend our clients to use.

Not all companies make money
By , for WP 3.6.1

Not every company makes money, and often companies are startups with little to no business. This product should only enforce the 500 query limit and not worry about whether a user is a business or not.
