If comments are an important part of your website, this plugin is well worth the try. I use the premium version, which is very affordable. It comes with many improvements that really should be in WordPress core, but also nice additions like email notifications, integration with Mailchimp, Upvote/Downvote, etc. Cool stuff! I only wish that the look and feel of the settings page were unified with that of WordPress, but sadly that's an issue with many WordPress plugins. Support was quick and helpful.

Exactly what I needed. I wanted to allow both members and guests to post comments on my sites, but I don't want a bunch of human spammers posting their links either. I'm not running an Internet-based billboard, after all. This plugin is the perfect solution. Removes all hyperlinks from comments automatically and even removes the website field and link in author bios if wanted. Eliminate the opportunities to spam and you eliminate spam. Also, if any spam does get through, this plugin even allows me to delete them all with one click. Great job, developer! I highly recommend this plugin.

I installed it on my site and after trying every limited option that comes in free version it doesn't remove links at all. Really useless plugin
