    CleanTalk seems to be letting through 75% of all spam at the moment, on my website!

    I have tested it and it works. My question is, is it possible to customize that error message? I would like something non-specious like “Sorry, Please try again later” or “Server Error. We’re working to fix this” etc.

        Thanks for your quick reply.

        That is awesome. I will look into it soon.

        For the past two days this tool has done a great job of block spammers. I got tired using reCaptcha and quiz challenges and it seems the persons are doing it manually or have some smart system to outsmart the two security tools.

        I set contact form to record their IPs and decided to look for a way to report them as SPAM and quick Google search brought me to your platform that has submission tool for reporting SPAM IPs and look up their report history from your database.

        To my amusement, I found all the IPs I collected have a SPAM history that dates back months and years go. I wondered why the IP providers haven’t blacklisted the IPs from use. But thank God, you have a WordPress solution that sync’s spam IPs in real-time from other websites that are using your tools. And this has helped reduce the spam to ZERO!
