Thanks very much, working a treat so far, and since the re-captcha has been hacked i advise all board owners to install this mods.

Cheers for your efforts

I installed this hack a couple months ago... but never commented in this thread. This hack has all but removed ALL spam from my forum.. up until a day ago when recaptcha was broken. Since installing this.. until a day ago... I had 0 spam at all!!! THIS mod is HUGE for preventing spam! Now... with the addition to another recent mod for asking specific questions.. I don't expect to have much. THANK YOU!! 5 stars!

This is a great mod. Thanks so much!

One suggestion would be to show in the description, documentation, and possibly the dependencies for the install is to have CURL enabled on the server for those users that want to actually be able to check the StopForumSpam database. I knew my server could contact SFS, because I was able to manually ban/submit spambots, and they show up as logged in their database immediately.

I was experiencing the exact same errors in my log file, and the spambots were able to register because the mod wasn't able to read the database at SFS just like tomarsyd describes earlier here and then he posted a link to the fix here.

Here is a sample of the error in the log in case someone is searching:

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

I have enabled CURL, and now the mod has already checked with SFS, and denied several spammers, while successfully signing up an actual user.
Thanks again!

That's over 150 a day, while my previous spam counter measures stopped all except about 10 a day, those 10 were really starting to cause issues. So again, thanks for this very cool mod.

But I do have 1 question, I haven't looked into it real hard yet but every since I installed this mod and one other spam mod that creates a question during registration. My own bot which posts a few GSS feeds to my site now needs to be moderated to be approved and it wasn't like that before. Again, I haven't looked into it real hard yet but if somebody has a simple answer, I would appreciate it.

I would remind you and others that the database is for known (i.e., proven) spammers. If people start reporting registrants who they merely suspect might be spammers or might be intending to spam, the entire database becomes effectively useless. It is in the interest of ALL forum owners that we protect the integrity of the database by exericsing good sense.

works for me

What do users who're blocked see when they're denied access?

That is true, but at the end of the day, the data fetched does expire and your individual expiration times can be set in modification settings. So even if there is a false positive, it should not last so long as to ban your legit users permanently.

This setting is located at StopForumSpam: Remote Expiry

I just got stuffed by hostgator who said that I sent 3500 emails out in an hour. It seems related to this mod. Is this the mod verifying emails etc. And is the a way I can throttle the emails being sent to about 200 an hour? Why so many will they reduce? these were sent after installation.

GlowHost.com 10 Jan 2011 23:14

This mod doesn't send any emails. It makes log entries in the vB admin panel instead.

Britmovie 10 Jan 2011 23:27

Have you got an email I can send the email to as it talks about removing emails and only was sent when I installed your mod. be greatful if you could take a peak?
