As reported on the link below, this plugin in no longer supported.
Unfortunately when testing various websites on pingdom it is this plugin that adds a significant performance hit.
It used to do a great job, now I need to find an alternative
It stopped track-back and ping-back spams that the other anti-spam plugin missed. I have not had a single spam for 2 months. Thank you for this wonderful tool you created.
Like the previous poster, I've been using WP-Spamfree for years, and it really rocks. I was tired of reading through tens and hundreds of spam comments collected by Akismet, just to make sure there wasn't a false positive among them...
So I installed WP-Spamfree (in addition to Akismet), and I hardly ever receive any spam now! However, the "real" comments do get through - no need to be concerned about that.
I can only recommend this plugin, it will almost completely eliminate your spam moderation queue!
I have been using this plugin for years additionally to Akismet, so while Akismet was simply collecting the spams it was detecting, and placing them in a separate section to be treated, WP Spamfree was purely removing them before they arrive, without mistake : the real comments were still arriving.
Sometimes a real spam still ends in the moderation section but it is very rare.
As it can also be used to create sort of a minimalist contact page and also protects that one contact page, I have also used this feature for a long time.
It has again been updated recently after a long period it was left aside. I am happy to be able to use it again and would recommend it widely.
