I use JComments 3.0 with this plugin and spam is virtually gone. Since I don't have time to moderate each and every post, I rely on the kcaptcha for guests. I'm here to say that there are real people sending spam to your blog and bypassing the kcaptcha. Before Clean Talk, I got 25 spams a day. Now maybe one squeaks through every 3 months. I get a monthly report on how many were caught, and the developers are open to new suggestions. The tiny amount you pay per year is worth the headache of having to manually catch every spam that people are sending. Forget spambots, now we have to deal with human beings whose full time job is to send spam to as many blogs/websites as they can. Clean Talk gets them all. Extraordinary piece of software!

Awesome extension. It works like a charm. Easy to install and configure. After one week of trial operation with JComments, the success rate is 100%. It's definitely worth to pay small subscription for this plugin.

We use this extension to filter spam sign-ups on our staff login area of our company website. Works great, and for the minimal cost, it is well worth the investment!

I had a discussion forum with Kunena and was beginning to get hit with several spam bots a day and increasing. I got this little extension, and no more. Really. I was skeptical, but NO MORE SPAM was getting through.

I have had maybe 5 folks in 3 months who were stopped that I had to manually OK, but the service is amazing.

The trial is free and after 2 weeks you will gladly send in the $8/year cost!

It was very comfortable. My e-shop based on Joomla and Virtuemart 1.1.8 daily has about 20 spam comments. Came across this plugin, read the reviews on boards, downloaded and installed. It works clearly, spam cuts perfectly. Has a flexible, intuitive options. Moreover, there is a 14 day trial period, the trial period for review.
The developer has an excellent forum. I needed advice on setting within an hour after my post on the forum, got a complete answer.
The system works almost instantly. The surprising thing is that the visitor does not even notice it. From the moment you click "Send comment" - is less then second, but the plugin through a server to scan the message for spam signs and return the response back. A rare example of cool plugin from the category of MUST HAVE.

It was a serious headache with Virtuemart's 'Ask a Question' feature. Visitor found captchas are hard and calculation challange didn't serve well. I was quite desparate to find something better.

CleanTalk worked like a charme. Deployment was very easy and spam protection is very good!
