    Hi,

    I was wonder if your plugin check all form submissions or just the comment and registration forms?

    Thanks-

    It checks all forms that have something that looks like a field for email, login id, password or URL. If it finds something it then checks for things like the red herring form, or how quickly the user answered. It then checks the IP against the spam databases.

    Awesome! I think this will help cut down spam on my newsletter registration form.

    Thanks!

    Hey Keith,

    Does the "Spam Words List" work like this as well? Or does that just work on comments.

    It works on any form, but it may not see the subject/title or body fields correctly if they have strange names.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Would it be easier/better if your plugin just used the existing Comment Blacklist that's built into WordPress itself, sort of like how the Ban Hammer plugin does? That way we won't have two separate lists to keep up with. Or is this not possible?

    This makes a lot of sense.

    I will look onto this and see if I can do something on the next release.

    Thanks,

    Keith
