Have you noticed that new checkbox that shows by the comment form? The one that you need to check to prove that you’re not a spammer? It has been 100% effective at blocking automated spam during this last week. This checkbox is generated by G.A.S.P, a free plugin for WordPress, and we think it’s the simplest and most effective anti-spam plugin out of every other plugin.
Because G.A.S.P doesn’t use any external servers to check for spam you won’t get false positives, but at the same time you won’t get spambots making comments. This is why G.A.S.P is the most effective anti-spam plugin for WordPress. 🙂
