If you have users using a freenet email address then those will be blocked because of the spamword list. You need to modify the spamword list manually and fix this yourself.

Been using it for year, can not say i am a fan of the new look but the functions are the same.

Very good at catching spammers, a lot of options to help you allow through the traffic you want. It's been extremely effective in reducing the amount of spam I have coming in to near zero while catching only one false positive in my first year of using it.

The main reason I love using this plugin is because I can identify and remove database junks. Last time I also realized this plugin effectivity. I unchecked an option to block amazon spam and then I was able to see spams appearing on my website next day. So, whatever others may say but I like using this plugin. Plugin highlights: * Feature rich * Database cleanup * Light weight * Strong protection
