Works 100%

Isn't it great when a plugin just works 100% with no ifs or buts...

Thank you.

Please keep this updated!

This plugin has saved me so many sleepless nights, being hounded by a troll is not a nice thing at all. This plugin has at least given me a fighting chance to make it slightly more difficult for the person because now a new email address will be needed to be created next time he registers.

Thanks Ban Hammer BIG thumbs up from me! :D

Very good and useful plugin

I have a nice little list of @domain.com's that are now banned. This plugin was the last missing link to getting my buddypress site spam free and allow my users to be free to create their own groups etc.

Now when I get a splogger I just add them to the list before deleting their account and they are gone. I still get the odd one from a new domain but about 90% of the spammers that get through my other defenses are now gone.

Does exactly what it claims to do.

One of the few plugins I've ever run across that does exactly what it purports to do, in a simple, no-nonsense manner.

I was getting HUNDREDS of spam registrations per month (it had gotten up to 50+ a day) on my site, and within minutes of installing, the email notifications of new users signing up from these "iffy" domains stopped cold.

I'm not a programmer, and could not afford to hire anyone to solve this. I investigated on my own, and found solutions that either just didn't work, or actually broke my site, and screwed up my registration page (it's a customized registration screen).

Thank goodness I found Ban Hammer.

Simple, effective.
