It will also scan posts and determine if the post is spam or not. You have 4 options if the post is determined to be spam.

User Post Threshold:
Fassim will scan all posts from a user until they have reached that number, then it will not scan them anymore. So if Fassim determines the post to be spam it will not increment their post count. This can be useful if you are using promotions, because some spammer will post a few posts to get their count up so they can get promoted to do more things..(e.g. signatures, private messaging...etc)

Hello, any chance this will be released for 4.0? It's the only one I have found where you can block by country.

We differ from StopForumSpam by having a few more controls over what can be blocked like :

* Block countries and regions from registering to your forum. (just enter a country code, you don't have to edit a .htaccess file like most people do.)

* Block anonymous proxies.
* Block Top Spamming Domains.
* Block Top Spamming ISP’s.
* Scan posts and allow you to moderate the posts

which hundreds have told us that it help with false positives that they were getting using other spam plugins.

How is this working for people? I need some input.

edit: If we wanted to report spammers to you to add to your database, would this make it easy? I saw no link for such reporting on your website.

I've just download it several days ago and already try it for about 3 days, but I wonder why even though i've already block country by giving the country code, the spammer from the blocked country still can register to my forum? The country that i'm talking about is from Russia and romania (i've blocked that 2 country from registering).. Is it just happened to my case?
