Not Supported Uses Plugins Additional Files  

This mod allows you to block users from registering when their email address domain is on a spam list. There are currently 261022 email address domains on the included spam lists. There is one list for every 0-9, a-z character plus one exemption list. However, there is no guarantee that every entry on a list is a true spam domain.

The lists were compiled by combining a personal list with various online sources, none of which disallows use in a mod such as this. Therefore, brought to you is this spam list mod. You can add or remove entries from the spam list files. If you add an entry, make sure to add it as a lowercase entry. The plugin takes care of the rest.

The various spam list files range is size from about 4.0kb to around 0.4mb so be sure that you have enough memory available before installing this mod. The mod calls in the exemption list and one spam list file, and unsets them as soon as possible to free memory. If an email address domain is on the exemption list, it is not blocked.

Should a user be blocked from registering at your forum, an email will be sent to your vB webmasteremail address and the user will see the vB banemail phrase message, so no screenshot of this mod is necessary. Everything is in alphabetical order so if you do not like the spam list files, just make your own set of files. Enjoy!

I've installed it. But, where does it show up in the ACP?

Calorie,

I went to Banning Options, and a couple of other places, and can't find it. Thanks.

This plug-in just seem redundant to me.
The banned e-mail addresses box will not accept 260,000 e-mail addresses!

And I'm pretty sure vB would run out of memory and crash trying to scan against that whole list.

It doesn't show up anywhere. It just works. You will get an e-mail every time someone tries to register with one of the 260,000+ banned domains. If you want to remove or add domains, edit the spamlist files.

I've been looking at implementing an RBL specifically for VB registrations. It'd be pretty simple in relation with a plugin like this to implement a very simple rbl check against spammer domains, and means VB admins could contribute to the RBL.

Just need some other geographic locations willing to host a slave dns server off a master.

I've uninstalled this hack. I got SO MANY legitimate users that were blocked because of this. I had to go in and remove dozens and dozens of legit e-mails so people could register. No problems with registrations now. I used an alternate spam blocking method. this may work for you, but I certainly don't recommend blocking out the entire world.
