Does the plugin block **all** spam traffic?
Well, no. Unfortunately some of the spam services uses techniques that makes them unrecognisable, but it still blocks nearly all of them 🙂
Does the plugin use any of my data?
No, not at all.
Do I need an account to use it?
Nope, no need of an account.
Can I put my own URLs that I want to block?
Yes you can! And each URL will be a wildcard. That means, if you put horrible-spam.com on the list, it will block all the trafic from that domain + sub-domains on any level.
