If you're looking for effectiveness without unnecessary settings to tweak, look no further. I've been using this plugin for 3 days now, and my daily 40+ spam comments have stopped. No conflicts. Genuine comments get through. The author deserves 6 stars.

This plugin seems to be too good to be true. But it is true, it exists and it is too good. It's fantastic! It blocked comment spam even when the content is in the cache. pity that does not support WordPress Login and Registration. I was suspicious when I installed it on my site, but now I'm going to install it on 4 other sites. I'm a boring guy to give 5 stars to a plugin, but this one is deserving so far.

I know Gulshan for a long time and I really appreciate his work. I was happy when he created this amazing plugin. But this review is completely honest, not because I know him. I installed this plugin on one of my blogs for testing and then decide whether to use it on others or not. I must say that it works like a charm, very lightweight and easy to install. It keeps SPAM comments away from blogs. Just install it once and forget. Thanks, Gulshan brother for creating this amazing plugin. Ravi Dixit 🙂

In fact, I really forgot about spam comments. Now I do not have to go to the comments section and check again, that no spam comments came. So now there is no hassle to delete, just keep publishing content and enjoy happy blogging 😎.
