[Resolved] [Plugin: AVH First Defense Against Spam] It did NOT block SPAM but it did block ME!
I installed the plug-in and I keep receiving the same amount of SPAM as before.
Now I try to access my own web site or login and I get a message that says:
“Access has been blocked.
Your IP [XXX.XXX.XX.XX] is registered in the Stop Forum Spam or Project Honey Pot database.
If you feel this is incorrect please contact them
Protected by: AVH First Defense Against Spam”
I tried to contact both the Stop Forum Spam or Project Honey Pot database,
Project Honey Pot has a contact form with a “Mistaken Listing” option, that I used, I hope they do something about it.
I was going to fill in the form at Stop Forum Spam but I saw this:
Think about your question as questions like “why am I blocked?” will simply be ignored. Seriously, Im sick of the people that go “Im not a spammer, why am I listed?”. Save yourself the time and me the effort of blocking you by not being stupid, use the search page. Our collective mind reading powers only cover a distance of several miles and not the entire planet. If you dont put in your email, username and IP details with a query, if relevant, then you will get a rather terse reply.”
I clicked on the link to Project Honey Pot’s removal request page and I got a 404.
Ridiculous. So, in other words, you are blocked (unfairly) and that’s it
What’s the point of this, if SPAM keeps coming in and legitimate users are blocked without option to appeal???
I’m just guessing the problem lies in that this is a shared IP address because that’s how some ISPs operate in the Philippines, so I’m forced to use it. No other choice. It’s not my fault and I shouldn’t be blocked for that. You should find a better way of implementing this, this is absolutely ridiculous.
