Helpful offers a simple spam protection without attacking the privacy of some countries. The spam protection can be disabled with the filter helpful_simple_spam_protection.

If you place this snippet in your functions.php the spam protection will be disabled.

 * This can be used to disable Helpful's simple spam protection.
 * @param bool $status default protection status (true).
 * @return bool
add_filter('helpful_simple_spam_protection', function (bool $status) {
    $status = false;
    return $status;

// Alternative usage:
add_filter('helpful_simple_spam_protection', '__return_false');
