I'd love to get this mod working on my forum, but I simply don't have time to sort through 16 pages of posts after the initial install searching for more code changes. I have the mod without any of the changes posted to this thread and in 3 months it has not stopped a single spam from getting through. I get 3-5 spam per day on my forum, and I'm really looking forward to that update!
Something is wrong with your installation, I think. When I installed this without any changes from the 16 pages of discussion and code it still stopped most spam for me. That wasn't reflected on the index listing, but they were flagged just fine.
You should probably go back through the install directions and check for the code changes, then check you list of words. Mine isn't even close to some people on here in length and still catches most spam. When it doesn't it's usually because I need a new word/pattern in the list.
The one thing I think I am ready to track down from the forum here is code that flags anything with too many links. I'm starting to see more of that and it's not always caught by listed words.
