Thanks very much for this useful plugin! I am using it to block on domain level so that spammers don´t use the «from» mail input to insert our own domain. This makes it easy. It´s just a plugin to the point without bling bling. Easy to understand and use and it blends perfectly in to the default user interface of CF7 in back end but also in front end for the error message! The only thing: Would be great if the background color in back end would have the same color like the other tabs of CF7. This dark gray seems bit to dark. But think this is personal reference. Really nice, thanks a lot for this!

It doesn’t work, when you put a word or a phrase to block for input fields, it’s still submits the form regardless, it works for word and email id. But it doesn’t work for more than one word, like phrase (e.g. ‘spam word’) – it will submit form even if this phrase is listed among to block

We finally stopped Eric. And many other spammers/bots as well. Thank you.

Unfortunately, it’s not working. I’ve attempted to add a few test case keywords to block (comma separated) and the contact form still sends the email successfully and provides a success message (instead of the rejection message). Checked the installation & use instructions but I couldn’t find anything I’m overlooking anywhere. I’m pretty certain something’s going on with the plugin but sadly I can’t recommend it. It’s a shame, as I’d love to use it as well as send a contribution to the author! I’ll be happy to change my review score if something changes. Thanks.
