WP-SpamShield vs my older spam recomendation

Last Update: August 09, 2016

About a year ago I created a blog at Wealthy Affiliate Do you need a spam blocker? I highly recommended a specific spam plugin as appose to Wealthy Affiliate's recommended Askimet.

At the time, Wealthy Affiliate used Askimet and it was totally rubbish. Anyone that used it had major issues.

Fast forward, a few months ago I saw that Wealthy Affiliate recommended alternative spam blocker called WP-SpamShield.

Now, I don't know how long this has been recommended by Wealthy Affiliate because I've been out of action here for many months prior to seeing it.

So for those who haven't used WAs new recommendation, I can testify to it's awesomeness and does the job very nicely.

If you're not using WAs recommendation which is the WP-SpamShield, then I suggest that you change yours today - you won't regret it!

I hope you have a truly awesome day...let me know your thoughts...

Thx for letting me know, I really appreciate it. Is there anything else I should know I've not been on WA for months?

As far as I know. No need any spam protection anymore, because WA have you covered.I disabled my spamshield as WA recommended.

How's your site without a spam plugin?

So far no issue. Unlike before there are lots of conflict between SShield and the other plugins.

Sharon if your site is hosted here on the WA platform you need no form of spam shield at all with the new security update
