I am looking for some good options for protecting a new (under construction website) from human spammers and computer spammers in the comments section of a wordpress site.
We have sites using the captcha code however we would prefer not to use it to make it an easier user experience. It also requires manual approving and marking as spam which is time consuming to read given the amount of spam the site attracts.
After some research I have found a few listed below to consider. I would love to hear your experience, success or failure stories to help my decision making because a "web spam" search recovered 179 plugins for Wordpress!
The balance I look for is (1) automation from an admin perspective, (2) easy for the user and (3) it lets through above 95% of legitimate comments.
In my shortlist after some research includes:
- AntiSpam Bee
- Ghost Captcha
- Stop Spammers
- Bad Behaviour
- Disqus (I like the Facebook and Google+ integration)
- or a combination of the above ie. Akismet and AntiSpam Bee installed together.
Appreciate your feedback.
