Genius! And providing a link from something like google to download that firefox browser could also make you some money

Nice hack

Even if aol proxies are blocked, there is still plenty of web proxies out there which can be used for creating an account (duplicate maybe).

Any way to edit the message in your xml?
Kxml and other editors don't like to open it, because they find an error.

True. But this mod wasn't designed to block all proxies, or even all open proxies.
It was just designed to block AOL users from using the anonymous proxies provided by AOL.

If you want to block ALL proxies, then you need another mod...
Perhaps these mods could help you...
* Check proxy RBL on new user registration
* DNSBL/Open Proxy-Blocking
* Proxy to Real IP Conversion
* Web Proxy Redirector

Just uninstall, or disable the plugin named "Block AOL Proxy Use" via the plugin manager.

I did not include an admincp setting for it, as it is so simple it doesn't really need one.

I have no idea what Kxml is. However, it opens fine in notepad, Wordpad, etc.
If you're using Linux, try using a conversion tool.

Alternatively, if you just want the source, send me a PM and I'll send it to you as a PM.

I have no idea, because I don't run 3.7.
However, I see no reason why it shouldn't. It doesn't use any complicated functions.
Give it a try and see if it works. If it does, I'll update the file to make it officially compatible.

Thanks for the answer.
Kxml is an XML editor for KDE and it won't open with an error.
All other editors tell me, this is a binary and it will be corrupt, if it is saved.

It works really great!
Could be too good for me, because my members are older they will have a lot of problems with thsi mod.
