are there any other good supported spam hacks? this one seems to be cutting down on bots registering but the ones that get through are posting links and stuff and i have it set to stop them end i cant delet posta as spam and ban user because of the error so i have to do them seperate so its not submitting the bots. mind you im running 3.8

ForceHSS 07 Jan 2012 13:47

are you using the 3.8 version are you sure you have all the settings right if they are right no spammers should get through

djjeffa 08 Jan 2012 13:27

well i was getting about 8 bots a day joining with it on now its off and i have 36 already and we are only 9 hrs into the day. but when i had it on it was letting them put links into there sigs even tho I had it set not to let them.

ForceHSS 08 Jan 2012 16:16

add that bot in your robots.txt if you want to not allow it to that location

Alfa1 09 Jan 2012 15:49

Does it follow robots.txt ?

I have added "glowhost" to Bad behavior blacklist, so its really blocked from accessing my site. What on earth is this bot for?

ForceHSS 09 Jan 2012 16:16

never had the bot before so not sure

I've had a problem where one user, who has way more than the required amount to be exempt from registration, and is in two usergroups that are exempt, STILL keeps ending up in the moderation queue when he posts. I came here to report it or get some help, but the first comments on this page disappoint me as it sounds like the author isn't here anymore. In the two months that I've had this installed, it's stopped all my spam problems though. Kinda mixed feelings on this one.

the easy way around this is to create a new usergroup and set all to no
i have trapped many who attempted to bypass it and can't coz their not put into default group and placed into a custom usergroup with no permissions

also ensure you have put your API keys in and review the logs dailt to submit their details to stopforumspam

I think maybe I made my post confusingly... one of my users is being moderated when he shouldn't be, and it's really annoying to have to keep approving his posts when looking at my settings he should be exempt 3 ways already.

Does this take care of spam already posted? Or only as it comes in? And the same question for banning spammers.

Thanks
