Its working now I had to update the Spam-O-Matic to the new version hopefully that is the only issue I run in to :)

But I do have one more question and thart is what about the 15000 spam bots the registered, will this system take care of all them if they try to post?

Same question :)

I installed the plugin and it has blocked a few registrations as well as moderated a few comments.

One thing I am confused about is the easy clean function. I think I have it turned on but cant figure out how its supposed to work. I dont see any spam-o-matic specific tools in the moderation drop down menu...? Nor on the user group banning menu like I saw on one screenshot. Am I missing something or is it supposed to be 'invisible'?

Disregard, instead of all that, i just registered using a proxy, registered as spammer, mad a spammy post using one f the catch phrases, and it got me :0) and posted the stats i wanted to see. Thanks for your effort. More than one way to skin a cat.

You need to go into the thread to see that option but you can use the option u see in the pic it will delete the post as spam as well

I've had this mod up and running since the start of October, and it's been fantastic: occasionally one or two spammers get through, but no big deal. I may delete seven, perhaps ten accounts a week.

In the last week and a half, though, I've just been getting completely bombarded, with dozens, sometimes fifty or more getting through in a day. The Glowhost log shows that it's still stopping a bunch of them, but I'm wondering if maybe the stopforumspam site isn't updating as fast as it should perhaps? I'm just amazed at seeing the same IP address 10, 12, 16 times having gotten through, and those were many hours apart.

I have a tiny site. It's not like I am running some mega-board where one would expect to get clobbered every day with this stuff. I'm just wondering if anyone else has been experiencing this of late, and any suggestions to help stop it, or at least slow it down.

Yea we got hit by a huge wave of spambot signups recently, glowhost spam-o-matic was pretty good up until that point.

Ended up going with the KeyCaptcha mod, http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=257294
