Good for beating spam
By , for WP 4.0.1

Used it to replace Askimet and it reduced the daily spam from 20-30 to 10-20 per day over the course of 2 months.

I expect this to keep falling as time goes on.

The only issue I have is the additional elements it adds to the head, which I understand are part of what it does, but may require additional tweeking/consideration for functionality in conjunction with content/plugins.

Working great so far
By , for WP 3.9.2

I tried using a different form honeypot without success. This plugin completely blocked my spam. Blocking ~20 spam comments / day.

Only reason for 4/5 is I'd like it to be a lot easier to see the spam it blocked. Ideally I would still see the comments it blocks in the Spam comments folder so I can tell that it's working and unmark something as spam if its accidental. This would feel the same as email.

as an FYI my site only gets spam on blog post comments, my gravity forms were already working well without spam.

Very nice
