I noticed that the mod author has not logged in since August 19th, 2016 - so there is little hope of any updates.

However, anyone still using this addon may want to considering modifying the source:

Find All:
http://www.stopforumspam.com/api

Replace:
http://api.stopforumspam.org/api

Quote
API queries are running at ~200ms globally, and they're geographically load balanced (thanks to @sucurilabs) to the closest API node but only if you use http://api.stopforumspam.org. API calls to http://www.stopforumspam.com will be a little slower, and they have no global fault tolerance.

Source : https://twitter.com/StopForumSpam/status/1104875246648213506


Do note that there are 3 places to update the www.stopforumspam.com


except are we certain that it's supposed to be .org? because I get a 404 or 403 when attempting to access the address at .org


and, while we're at it, I believe that the http:// should be corrected to https://

Most APIs will give you errors if you try to randomly call them rather than calling them with the proper parameters...
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

The .org works just fine :

http://api.stopforumspam.org/api?email=test@aol.com

email no 0

I would assume the non-https link would respond quicker as no SSL handshake needs to be done in order to get the results.

Probably in StopSpammer.php, but do perform your own search to make sure.
Just a note here that changes should be made in Register.php as far as I can see.

I just checked. I believe you are incorrect. The URL to change is not (and would not be) in Register.php

On my 2.0.15 I see that changes with this API request are made in Register.php file:

Hardly, I was discussing the same :)
I don't even have StopSpammer.php file that you were referring to?
And in latest version you can see that there call through register.php file which checks for members IP/email/username. I believe only that should be replaced with new API link, in 3 places, like Kindred mentioned.
Maybe I'm missing something though :)

do note that there are TWO mods which use SFS...   one is called Stop Forum Spam, the other is called Stop Spammer

Sounds like people are confusing the instructions between the two mods
