Not Supported Uses Plugins Additional Files  

This mod allows you to block users from registering when their email address domain is on a spam list. There are currently 261022 email address domains on the included spam lists. There is one list for every 0-9, a-z character plus one exemption list. However, there is no guarantee that every entry on a list is a true spam domain.

The lists were compiled by combining a personal list with various online sources, none of which disallows use in a mod such as this. Therefore, brought to you is this spam list mod. You can add or remove entries from the spam list files. If you add an entry, make sure to add it as a lowercase entry. The plugin takes care of the rest.

The various spam list files range is size from about 4.0kb to around 0.4mb so be sure that you have enough memory available before installing this mod. The mod calls in the exemption list and one spam list file, and unsets them as soon as possible to free memory. If an email address domain is on the exemption list, it is not blocked.

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 banemail phrase message, so no screenshot of this mod is necessary. Everything is in alphabetical order so if you do not like the spam list files, just make your own set of files. Enjoy!

There needs to be a more refined list for this. As it is, it would be preventing the registration of a whole lot of legitimate people.

Calorie: Can you answer why in the world Hotmail.com, Yahoo.com, Gmail.com and AOL.com are on that list?

*Uninstalls until a better list is out.

Every entry on the spam list came from my personal list or an online source where the domain was listed because spam was sent from that domain. Personally I've had spammers post garbage using aol.com, gmail.com, hotmail.com, and yahoo.com email addresses, among others, but there is no guarantee that every entry on the list is a true spam domain. The neat thing here is that if you don't want to block a domain on the list, simply remove it from the list. It's up to you as to what you want to block.

I think a more refined list is needed. Regardless of how many domains you can remove, there are far too many legitimate domains on this black list.

Aol, yahoo, gmail, hotmail all have spammers and legits. Domains like bellsouth & adelphia & comcast are all emails given directly by ISPs. This list is blocking way too many people even if you edit all these out, how many others are blocked that most folks don't know about from different ISP providers.

Keeping my eye on this one. The majority of my registers use yahoo, hotmail or gmail as their primary address so I would be killing my board if I used this list as it stands.

FYI: 1033 more domains have been added to the spam list. Plus, there is now a spamlist_0_to_z.zip file attached to this release that contains the main spamlist.txt file broken into parts: spamlist_0.txt contains the domains that start with zero, spamlist_1.txt contains the domains that start with one, and so forth. Everything is in alphabetical order so if you don't like the main spamlist.txt file, just make your own list.

An email will be sent to your vB webmasteremail address whenever someone is blocked from registering at your forum. This webmasteremail will tell you the registration email address that was blocked, so you can remove the blocked domain from the main spamlist.txt file if you choose.

As the spamlist.txt file took some time to create, it's doubtful that further updates to this mod will be made, so please post any spam registration email domain not already on the spam list so others can add it to their list. Entries to the spamlist.txt file should be make in lowercase.
