Very nice plugin. Easy to configure even for a beginner like me. I had problems with spambots registering users on my website and sending out spam. I was using re-captcha but it didn't stop the spambots. This plugin solved my problems instantly and I have now disabled Captcha/re-Captcha entirely.

I have had several other anti "whatever" installed, and they have been doing a good job for years.
However, in recent months I have noticed a growing number of Registrations on my site, that is often from gmail, hotmail etc, with a long name at the start.
The other installed stuff didn't stop all of these, even the Captcha wasn't stopping it all.

However, installed this CleanTalk, and it stops everything! Good clean work, straight out of the box installation.
I purchased the PRO version shortly after, as it is cheap, and went on to doing the same for a few other sites.
Good work!
