Prevent people from registering via your comment moderation blacklist.
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.
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.
Great plugin to stop reg spams.
Specs say no further abbreviations i.e. whole email or domain... but it does do parts as well, so if you enter hotmail, you get no hotmail, hotmail.tiawan etc.
We rely on Ban Hammer. Well done and thank you
Simple. Perfect. Thx ;)
Great if you want to ban a @domain.com from registering.
Was getting loads of spam user registrations every day but they all came from specfic domains.
This plugin saved me writing a function to do same and been able to resist slapping a captcha on the site.
