Check existing users for known spam activity. Users are checked against stopforum spam blacklist.

The reason I created the plugin is that although you might be using lots of anti spam measures, at login at creating content etc.. but always at the frontdoor.

This plugin is about cleaning the house regularly with little effort. Spammers daily create new email addresses and it takes time to get them on spamlists. Using this plugin will find them also days, weeks or months after registration.

 

Installation and usage

Download and extract it in /mod folder and activate

To check users, go to the Admin area click on Users and then "Check for spammers"

Every page checks 40 users (The default value or the number you select in the plugin settings). If no users are in the list it means those users are not known for spam activity.
