SM has spam filters? And registering filters?

Maybe as an addon/plugin (that's why SR-PL forum got the same problem).
I'm an admin of SMF forum for 3+ years, and one day, I gonna block all .ch & .ru traffic (spambots attack through german IPs as well, but it's not fair to german fans to block them because of that...)


Char limit suxx :/

Ever tried the Akismet spam protection?
In Wordpress, it works pretty well.

They will. Trust me, I use them in SMF boards all the time. Ok, maybe none of them is frequented like this one, but still...

For some reason, I've had bad luck getting plugins to work. I install them, but they don't actually get in and work. Not sure what I'm doing wrong, but then I'm not really a nuts-and-bolts web guy at all.

We sure do have someone with that kond of skill here? Temporary admin privledges to fix it should be enough.
C'mon, guys? Anyone? Aren't you tired of spambots?

I'll pass along the advice I got from the BattleTech forums' back-end admin:

Don't start installing custom modules in SMF. It can jack up your upgrade path, to the point that you can't upgrade an existing board. You have to install fresh.
Power corrupts.
Absolute power is kinda neat.

I don't know what that guy installed, but the idea behind all of the mod and module capabilities of SMF is to allow that and AVOID having to work your actual files, so you can always upgrade, because nothing gets actually changed.

I think it turns off after a certain number of posts.
