    The following is a cross-post from a StopForumSpam announcement regarding this plugin and misuse of the StopForumSpam database.

    If you are using the WordPress plugin "AVH First Defense Against Spam" and are submitting reports to StopForumSpam with the "dummy" email address it provides, you can and should expect action be taken against you and your site.
    False reporting to our service is unacceptable and will not be permitted - even when it is enabled by a mod or plugin author.
    We are currently considering barring this plugin access to our service completely; at this time I would recommend looking for alternatives in the event that we choose to do so.

    For more information, please refer to the announcement topic regarding false reporting to StopForumSpam:

    Additional cross-post:

    A follow-up on the matter regarding the WordPress plugin "AVH First Defense Against Spam".

    The developer has contacted me directly and informed me that an update that removes the "dummy email" submission facility is in the pipes and will be released shortly. I'd like to publicly thank the author for getting on top of this issue and resolving it in a timely manner.
    Please update your installations to the latest version once it is available.

    Thanks for resolving this quickly; please notify me on StopForumSpam when the new version is out so I can notify the userbase.
