It is a very simple plugin to filter out the spam comments by using the popular technique called “Honeypot”. This is not the 100% solution to every possible spam comment, however I believe that this simple pattern can avoid at least 50% of spams in your comment.
- Option to user defined honeypot fields
- Option to record logs
