    My first choice is “Growmap Anti Spambot Plugin”. I never recommend Akismet as “Prevention is better than Cure”. Didn’t tried other alternatives mentioned here, will check them too.

    Looks like AntiSpam Bee is only in German. Did you see an English version?

    Thanks so much for this post. I’ve been using Akismet and all of the sudden I am getting an overload of spam comments. I needed recommendations for a new spam preventer and this helped! Thanks.

    I recently tried Growmap Anti Spambot and it did not do anything, no check box, nothing. Clean cache or not.
    Tough to if I should use it when it does nothing…not.

    Previously I only depend on Akismet and it helps a lot. I was just eager to try out Growmap, unfortunately the check box is not properly align in my theme. Do you happen to know the reason?

    I use https://wordpress.org/plugins/goodbye-captcha/ because it blocks both spams and unauthorized login attempts. I was very surprised when I discovered so many login attempts into my site. (around 200 – probably it was an automated robot or something). And the best thing is that you can actually block these IPs.

    Very nice and wise collection of words to describe the importance of anti-spam plugins.
    I am running a video website. And when I started it, the Akismet was already installed. I want to ask is it necessary to install more anti-spam plugins to protect my website. I mean, professionally how many anti-spam plugins should be installed if you want 100% protection.
