The plugin files load even if the comments are closed?

This isn’t a bad plugin and it does what it says it does but it is still lacking in one big way. It seems to only check that fields were actually entered, but more advanced validation (like if an entered email address is valid or if you are using a captcha form) still get redirected to the default error page.
