Anyone else getting a huge influx of bots, even with this enabled?

They mostly just fill out their profiles with advertisement links, never actually post, so we can't report them to the database.

India mainly, one after another. If that country didn't have so many IP ranges I'd ban the whole place. The mod Stop the Registration Bots works better than glowhost spam-o-matic for these guys.

Be sure to hide the member list from non registered users and disable the homepage field.

you can put an ignore on the user, just place the userid of the person you want it to ignore

I've been using Glowhost combined with this mod which works well to
prevent new users (bots or real ones) from creating links in their profiles or anywhere

(Extra Spam Protection) Prevent Posting Of Links On User Group Per User Group Basis

For those of you who can't pull up their logs, I had renamed my admincp folder. Make sure the file glowhostspamomatic.php goes in that folder.

Looks Great thus far. One change I made was in the Give thanks. The default text of "Web Hosting" is a bit generic. Now reads "Spam-O-Matic provided by GlowHost.com" on our site.

Any plans for a paid version? Sorry I have not read through the hundreds of posts :-)
