This mod calculates the time it takes to go between these two pages:
  • /forum/register.php?do=register
  • /forum/register.php?do=addmember
The point is to try and prevent bots from registering at your forum when the time between the two pages is humanly impossible, assuming that humans actually take the time to complete the registration page.

Should a user be blocked from registering at your forum, an email will be sent to your vB webmasteremail address and the user will see the vB noregister phrase message, so no screenshot is necessary.

You need a Dedicated server to run vBulletin without problems.
Not true. VB customer support says you can run on hosted, its just that some shared web host companies don't allow it on their server. It mainly depends how active your forum is before problems start cropping up (any site that's very active needs its own dedicated server).

I just wanted to write real quick and say THANK YOU for this mod! My forum has been getting hammered by Spammers from China for the past week. I installed this mod last night on VB 3.7.1 and in the past 8 hours I've blocked 22 spam accounts.

THANK YOU AGAIN!!! +1 Highly recommend this mod. Install it BEFORE you get attacked.

I did test it. Just fill out the registration form REAL fast with bogus info. Name=111, Email=222, Password=333. I filled it out in 13 seconds and got a "Sorry the administrator has temporarily disabled new registrations" notice.

I want to thank the person for writing this mod. It has blocked 100 bot registrations on my forum since I installed it 2 weeks ago.
I just wish the bots would get the hint. They never stop trying to register no matter how many times they're blocked. There's one in particular that gets blocked at least 5 times a day, every day!

This mod absolutely rules. The single best thing you can do to prevent spam. Should be built in to VBulletin.

I just installed yesterday and it blocked 7 spambots from registering

Create an option to allow us to specify a forum that this mod can create a thread in, save the initial thread id and then post replies to for each registration.

Definitely works in 3.8.2, within moments of installing it, notified of registration of less than one second duration.
