Andy Baily, creator and developer of CommentLuv, a premier comment and spam busting WordPress plugin, closed the doors at some point in the last year or two. Andy had been very public about his struggles with Multiple Sclerosis1 (MS) since the battle began in 2012 and eventually decided that he could no longer provide support for the plugin.
Apparently the disease progressed to the point that Andy could no longer provide the service and quality in the product that his thousands of customers had come to expect. While the plugin seems to work fine for now, eventually as WordPress continues to be upgraded, compatibility and/or security issues may develop.
For bloggers, Christine Cobb at My Bonus Blog has a couple of suggestion for replacement plugins for the features that are included in CommentLuv Pro.
Andy is still active online with a Facebook MS diary and an account on Twitch, which I don’t have a clue about.
