Quote from: landyvlad on December 03, 2018, 10:51:02 PMRecently (last month or so) I have been getting a LOT of spammers attempting to register.Stop Spammer does seem to be doing it's job for most of them - any flagged as spam (i.e. in the relevant database I guess) are put in the "Awaiting Approval" queue. This can easily be a 10 a day though. I've taken all the usual precautions re the SMF core security features (questions etc) but that seems to be failing (as possibly is httpBL to some extent).Is it possible to set up a rule in Stop Spammer such that if a user is flagged as a spammer by BOTH email and IP, it just deletes it from the approval queue automatically? That'd be handy.Any advice around this would be most welcome. Thanks.

Quote from: SugarD-x on December 04, 2018, 03:54:16 AMIf I were you, I'd use [Mod httpBL] and StopSpammer in conjunction with a few other security mods or methods. Personally on my heavier forums, I'll mix those two with at least ReCaptcha and Bot Buster. More prevention methods and additional databases being used to catch and block the spammers tends to help as long as they are properly managed and don't conflict.

Quote from: Kindred on April 04, 2019, 12:12:02 AMWell, the fact that there is no error logged is more concerning.
