[Solved] Comments in WordPress “Blocked as Suspected Bot”

For some newly setup blogs, when an user places a comment on wordpress, it displays an error message stating that the comment is blocked as suspected bot. This is a serious issue as it prevents valuable comments from being published on the website.

Blocked as Suspected Bot error message in WordPress Comments

The solution to fix this error is rather simple. Delete a plugin named “Mojo Marketplace” which is sometimes installed by default by several hosting companies such as Hostgator, Siteground etc. Disable and delete the plugin and comments would work normally.

Don’t forget to setup Akismet and provide the API key to prevent spam comments.
