Bot and automated WordPress spam are growing threats and headaches for the WordPress community. Whether it is comment spam or automated contact form spam, it’s incredibly annoying and can be detrimental to the company’s website & customers. Over the years, developers and the WordPress team have developed plugins to fight spam including Recaptcha, Akismet Anti-Spam, Honeypot, and more.
