Is anyone willing to answer my question about why spam is still getting through and being posted? This thing doesn't seem to be working. Is it not compatible with the latest version of vbulletins or something? What's the deal?

Affiliate Program?

How do I remove the Affiliate information? I believe that the affiliate program is no longer going on. If it is, the hyperlinks are invalid.

It's in your settings to turn this off...

No, there are no settings in AdminCP > Settings > Options > GlowHost - Spam-O-Matic that control the hyperlink "Join the GlowHost Affiliate Program and earn $125 per sign up." that appears in the screen shot. That, and as I said/asked, the affiliate program is defunct (?), so why advertise what isn't available?

Added:

Okay, AdminCP > Styles & Templates > Search in Templates > Search for Text: glowhost finds glowhostspamomatic_bsc which contains the code controlling the content of the image in the screen shot. I can edit this file to remove the hyperlink.

Maybe this is what, when I installed SOM today, then went to SFS to get a API Key I was met with a message: "API Keys not available for the time being due to abuse." Swell, just swell.

any api key from any site can be used on any other site. They just give out different ones for each site so spammers can be tracked but a api key can be used on as many sites as you want even if you don't own the key

Yes, and that option is set to Disabled. Note the comment for this option:

Enabling this will add a link to in the footer of your forum.
That isn't the same thing that as what is showing in the image I posted. To eliminate the Affiliate hyperlink, you have to comment/remove it from the glowhostspamomatic_bsc template.

I asked Pedigree on SFS about this, and he said it's okay.

Mate then I dunno, I don't have that issue.

Did you enter a key in the Affiliate System: Affiliate ID

You can't get an affiliate key. The hyperlink url takes you to a non-existent site. I'd think that Spam-O-Matic would take care of this, as it's in their code for this MOD.

Possible to have auto-moderation issue immediate bans (along with stopping the post) instead of just putting posts into moderation/preventing posts?

I keep getting the following error when I go to install product-glowhostspamomatic.xml

Anyone else experiencing spammers getting through the system quite a lot in recent days?
