How about a Mod which exactly does the same but with Rules we can set ?
I am badly searching for that.

akisment doesnt seem to be effective enough for vbulletin.

How can I uninstall it from vB 3.6.5. It's not getting uninstalled and once enabled breaking the entire postings.. like duplicate posts, parse errors and even db errors.

Damn it.

Thank You. Working great on vB 3.6.8.

It seems that only the blog, user_ip and user_agent are required arguments for the API (note: not the actual message)

With that in mind, would it make sense to also use this to optionally check during the registration process as well?

I consistently see that the IP and/or email and name associated with flagged messages are associated with known spamming activities so there should be a fairly accurate hit ratio.

This would also save us the trouble of cleaning up the moderated posts and banning the users after the fact by either preventing them from signing up altogether or putting them in a n even more restrictive group.

A secondary suggestion would be utilizing this for checking Private Messages sent between users to prevent mis-use of bogus or compromised accounts.

For those looking for the registration checking functionality, I am investigating the use of the Check Proxy RBL on New User Registration mod as a temporary solution to limit the registration of SPAM users before they post/PM.

Still interested in seeing this functionality rolled into the Akismet as well as checking of PMs :-)

Check Proxy was a no go on cutting down spam registrations..

Any suggestions from the community? Note that no actual posts are making their way to the board thanks to this great plugin, but I'd like to cut out the registration all together if possible and no combination of human detections have seemed to deter them.

Product import takes forever in 3.7 so probably not working. Please update this for 3.7, thank you.

* Please update this for 3.7, thank you.

will this work on vb 3.8?

Anyone tried this with vb4 after updating?

It really worked well for us under v3.68 and would like to keep using it...

Thanks .. :)


skippybosco 15 Apr 2010 16:35

Yes. Works well in VB4

BadgerDog 15 Apr 2010 16:43

Can't tell you how effective this has been ...

Just noticed ... :)

Akismet option is built into vb4 4.03 ...

Did you use this add-on version, or the one built-in?

This add-on seems to have more options, including user group selections etc...

Thanks ..

Is there a way to configure the plugin such that it automatically removes a message if it is flagged as spam?

My moderation queue is overloaded, it becomes impractical to monitor it...
