this is what i find in spam matic log:

Venusian Arts PUA Spam-O-Matic Tagged ip - 98.64.196.143 - Spammer Found but allowed

It says it has identified the spammer, but has allowed the spammer.

That is because you have:
StopForumSpam: Desired Action
Set to: Log and continue with registration.

on another signup attempt, I get this one:

No Username Submitted Spam-O-Matic Tagged email - (email) Spammer Found but allowed.


Whats going on?

What is going on is that Spam-O-Matic detected bots and sent the to the vBulletin registration system. If you do not see them as registered users, the bots either failed on the vBulletin registration form, or did not click the email validation, etc.

Meaning they passed the Spam-O-Matic firewall and then where they went from there is anyone's guess.

Try running the 1.2.7 beta and see if it works for you. You can download it from this post.

I guess it is doing its job then...

I would prefer to have real visitors rather then spam traffic....

which do nothing for me...

I guess I can not complain, if I did have real traffic then they
would not be bothered much by spammers as it is doing its job.

This doesn't seem to be a widespread problem which leads me to believe that you guys are running other mods perhaps. If I am correct in my guess, have you tried temporarily disabling the other mods one by one to see if the error goes away? That way we can find where the conflict might be.

Also 6FRGaming View Post that isn't the full error I guess. Do you have the full error?

6FRGaming 20 Sep 2010 02:15

Mine was the same error as above, and it gave me the error whenever I tried PMing the banned person, or doing anything with a banned person.

I noticed that whatever action I was doing still happened, despite getting the error. So not a big deal, but kind of weird.

Same problem like ramtha in 1.2.6 and 1.2.7beta on a 4.0.7 while banning a user:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

the best way is to remove the spammer from your database , not to ban , because you lose more time .. then for the GlowHost maybe if you can add a MASS REMOVE USERS :) because i have a lot of new accounts created who are robots :-s

Fatal error: Call to a member function query() on a non-object in [path]/forum/includes/functions_ghsom.php on line 386 only i add the option : Remove user , delete all posts and report to StopSpamForum ... (i think is because the users dosen't have any post 100% ) but at least to not showing that error anymore or to write something "the user dosen't have any post " depends of the error .. keep it up , is very good the mod .

thanks

Suggestions

1. Use the vBulletin class_vurl instead of native curl, less trouble and then its vbulletins fault for "mysql gone away" errors

2. wrap the process in this so that vbulletin deals with reg errors first, thus not having to deal with excess logging

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and finally, some credit for reusing my code wouldnt go amiss.
