Spam Bots

Post by Globalkoas » April 29th, 2017, 4:51 pm

Seeing how we have had a recent string of spam for "a massage place".. Is there anyway we can up our protection?? Not that I know much about this, but I did abit of googling about spam bots and there seems to be a few things we could try.. While nothing will stop it 100 percent, I do think there a few options out there that might work for us..

You guys get some time could you look into it.. Thanks!!

OUt!

edit: this is one thing I was looking at.. and clean talk seems to come up alot in the search..

On myBB (the brother to PHPbb) it had a stopforumspam database where it would check through that database and ban bots instantly/automatically.

This is the official stopforumspam plugin for PHPbb: StopForumSpam plugin

Globey, your links were both for differing versions of CleanTalk, unfortunately a Premium service.

Hunter's Stop Forums Spam link...I've installed it and set it up.

It should help if people are in the Stop Forums Database. (And there are a few people in that database that our Banhammer plugin put on that database!)

I'm hoping this will help, but it won't stop them all. Generally only the ones already on the database's list of offenders.
