Disallow free-mail provider

Hi, I've seen a mod where people can't post unless their register with a non-free email address. The forum still lets you sign up and you can log in, but when trying to post it tells you that you have to change your email address to a non-free email address (your own website or internet provider etc...

ok, you guys are right. There is another code section similar to that one. I just don't understand why easy mod did not replace the code. First time that this happened to me...the code inside my file looks exactly like what easy mod was suppsoed to be looking for...oh well...changed it manuelly :)

after I installed this mod it stopped bots from spamming for a while, but then it got bad again so that I had to disable guest posting. The visual confirmation thing phpbb uses seems to be cracked. Not just that I'm getting tons of automatically generated spam posts, but also spam bots register like...

there is no way that this happens by hand. I'm sure they have found a way to get around the visual confirmation code. I get way too much spam. Do you guys know those hosting websites such as rapidshare? I've seen a porgram that automatically confirms their confirmation code...so it is probably not a...

[2.0.19] - Concerns about new max-login-attempt feature

I have a concern regarding the new max-login-attempt feature. I don't think it's a good idea to just block the username...instead the IP of the attacker should be blocked for X minutes. During that period the user shouldn;t be able to log in (any username). Right now, someone can post spam posts and...

I've encountered something similar: one user registered and after some days posted stuff in a forgein language that was clearly spam. I have visual confirmation code turned on... That sounds like a real person and not a bot, there is not much you can do in that case, other than delete the acoount a...

that's too bad...I don't like the idea of easy mod...a windows tool would be way easier and much more comfortable for this purpose...:(
