Support » Plugin: Stop Spammers » Great Plugin but….

  • The plugin is great and blocks a lot of spammers!
    But somehow there are still spammers comming trough.
    I checked up the IP’s and looked over to the country and blocked them, but still they continue to try to register on my website….

  • The plugin will not stop some spam from US ISP locations. The ISP usually shuts these down in a few hours.
    I found that if you are coming into a website from Verizon or Optimum or other large ISP there was a real chance of being blocked with a false positive. The trade off is to accept a few spam hits instead of blocking a good user by mistake.
    Also, some IP addresses are unknown to the spammer databases and will not be automatically blocked. Once they get in the plugin’s cache of passed IPs they will not be checked again until the cache is emptied. An IP stays in a cache for an hour, but repeated hits will refresh the date.
