"Ban-Hammer" Ext

Post by Holger »

Hi there, I am constantly fighting against spammers, for years now.
Even the best captchas and the like do not always help against the manual registrations.

I would love to see a Ban-Hammer Ext.
Just an additional button in the "Inactive Users" list:

Clicking the hammer inserts the domain into the banlist: *@domain.tld

What do you think?

Preventing them from registration is a better option, what Captcha are you using now?

Standard settings after installation.
My users are older and wont be bothered with complicated captchaes. Thats why I would like to have an alternative.
In phpBB 3.0.x I even had a link in the admin-activation email for immideately banning domains by one-click.

The standard setting is bad and to complicate for normal users.
Use the Q&A captcha with a answer you can't Google.
Like what is the second word in the tittle from my board.

Note that the squiggly letter type captchas we’re defeated years ago and are pretty much useless. The Q&A can be made as hard or as easy as you like, a link to your board would help us suggest something better.
