Some code cleanups, thanks to Cash.
This looks very interesting and something I will have a play with. We get spammed from this IP 18.104.22.168, it creates around 20 accounts per day but the accounts dont do anything or interact with the site. Its just annoying having to delete these accounts and if we leave them it will bring down the quality of our website. Thanks for sharing :)
Just to say that I have been running this plugin for about 3 days now and it has virtually stopped all spammers from coming onto my Elgg website, I have even been able to deactivate my captcha plugin.
I also see it creating a blacklist automatically (thanks to the external providers) so I know that spammers are actively being denied access, before this plugin I was deleting around 10-20 spammers a day, I've not seen one register within the last 48 hours :) RECOMMENDED!!
as far as i am aware, this plugin is involved directly with causing these repeating apache errors:
my log file hit 60MB after less than 1 week with just me using the site!
I am using this plugin for the last 1 year.. and every once in a month i report a spammer and delete it...
yesterday accidentally i reported a normal user as spammer and deleted it... to delete this spammer data i logged in to stopforumspam.com site and i shocked to see there is no spammer reports after 2012...
this means that reporting to stopforumspam.com is not working some how...
but if a spammer try to register it's stoping the registration and i am getting email notifiaction sayting a spammer was stopped during registration with a reason, stopforumspam email black list/
can u please check it and release a new version for 1.8.. hope new version will be independence of tracker plugin
i am attaching a screenshot Here http://s15.postimage.org/ftadscsd7/spamsubmit.png
@Cim: No, the ip blacklist is trigered by a denied registration. Could by fassim and could be not. Did you read the access denied message? Is important to know the reason for the blacklist.
To be clear: The ip is blacklisted only if the uses is reconized as spammer. Please check your email and see the reason for the block.
Weird, the spam login filter doesn´t hooks the login page, only the registration page. Maybe a incompatibility with ellg´s newer release?
I will update my test site, but give me more information. I need the content of plugin´s e-mail. The reason for the blacklist.
And again, by plugin doesn´t hook the login page. Its weird.
