devs are talking about ip addresses and ip address ranges. Why not to update and to optimize the phpBB3 default dnsbl_check? :roll:

As I stated before, a couple of weeks ago I suddenly started to receive successful human spam registrations on my board. Something not seen in well over two years.

After I started to use Stopforumspam the spam registrations went back down to zero.
Stopforumspam works with blacklists.

As far as I can tell from my personal experience your statement is not very accurate.
