Really great mod, as I'm starting to have problems with spam bots... I'll try for sure...

When will it be approved?

BTW: It's not free... You must pay a fee unless you want an e-mail to be sent to them every time a spammer tryes to spam your board...

I'll submit the mod at the end of May. But I'm afraid it will be rejected: 1) it's not absolutely free 2) I need to use modified text "For security purposes...", but the mod validator rejects it. I'll also submit the mod to phpbbhacks.

As regarding fee vs free, it might look strange, but I recommend the free variant. It will help to collect a database of spammers and make better spam protection.
