Worst plugin to work with, no support provided, doesn’t block the bots, invalid error message does not go even on successfully checking the captcha checkbox.

Just take a look at the Support forum for the plugin. A ton of support requests over the years going unanswered. It might not matter that much had the author constantly update his plugin to stay on top of issues. But the frequency of updates leaves much to be desired, I guess…..
