Stop Spammers

Stop Spammers is an aggressive spam plugin that stops spam registrations, logins and comments using multiple checks. It looks for typical spammer bad behaviors and blocks those. It blocks access to users who anonymize their browsers, and it checks how long it takes to fill in a comment or login form and blocks users who are too fast. The plugin is extremely aggressive and makes no apologies for occasionally blocking users who do not behave well. It will block users who install anonymizing plugins or turn off headers and cookies. Normal users will never know the plugin has been installed. The plugin installs "honeypots" to fool spammers into leaving spam with a hidden form, where they will be marked as a spammer and blocked. The plugin is not active as long as your site is being browsed so that it does not block content, but only kicks in if a form is submitted. When a spammer is detected, their address is added to a temporary cache so that future attempts are immediately blocked without having to recheck the spammer all over again. The plugin checks known spammer hosts such as Ubiquity Servers, disposable email addresses, very long email address and names, and HTTP_ACCEPT header. White List Requests: When a user is denied access to login, registration or comments, they are presented with a form which allows them to notify the Admin user that they wish to be allowed into the site. Spammers usually do not fill out the form, or if they do, it will be filled in with spam. When the user presses the submit button, the admin will get an email and can then white list the user so that the person will have access to the site. The admin should also clear the cache (on the stop spammer history settings page) and then the user will have access to the site.
