Owner's reply: Let's see...

a) No notification email in new comment or Fronted submit item
And for that K2 gets 10 out of 100? You clearly don't understand its advantages and what it brings to Joomla overall when it comes to serious content management.

b) No builtin captcha
You should look closer. It has reCaptcha, Akismet and StopForumSpam integration built in. It's the K2 settings if you're wondering.

c) it's easy just in backend not frontend (still using popup)
Is the popup a bad idea for some reason? The popup makes sure the template does not impose weird styling or cause JS conflicts from some 3d slideshow to an editing form. Plus it has room for other stuff like managing comments. You know, things neither Joomla nor other CCKs offer.

d) Documentation Just for beginner
You fall into contradictions here. If you're not a beginner as you suggest, how come you didn't see the options for reCaptcha, Akismet etc.?

All in all, I think you rushed in to give a bad/unfair (IMHO) review. Or you had a different objective from the start, as we know how much a 100% free K2 has cost other inferior yet commercial CCKs or wannabe CCKs.

For everyone else reading this, give K2 a serious try. Check its options, check the way it allows for template overrides with just a few files (not dozens as is the case with other CCKs or even com_content) or its parameter inheritance. K2 is a unified solution for content management in Joomla which is built with 3 goals in mind: performance, ease of use and developer/integrator flexibility. It's no wonder why the biggest Joomla sites worldwide run on K2.
