JLA: Demo board info has been added to the first post.
I have also updated the MOD to 0.3.1 to fix a tiny bug where I copied too much of the HTML from the WordPress plugin from which this MOD is ported. The extra HTML shouldn't have any adverse affect, however.
Further, for those wanting to see a simple graphic representation of this MOD's efficacy, take a look at this:
The image is from my board's stats @ bbProtection
. The red represents posts & registrations that were made on my board that were blocked by bbProtection as spam. The green represents posts & registrations that bbProtection did not flag as spam.
The graph shows two things:
1) My board gets embarrassingly little traffic (generally less than 10 registrations AND posts per day).
2) When I had Raven's Antispam enabled on my board, it blocked all
spam before it was sent to bbProtection for their tests. Disabling Raven's Antispam instantly resulted in the spam again being sent to bbProtection for screening.
I'm using bbProtection's graph as an example, of course; if you do not have bbProtection enabled on your board, all of that red would of course make it to your board. Raven's Antispam stops it cold.
And even if you have bbProtection, Raven's Antispam would be a benefit still; bandwidth to send posts & registrations to bbProtection and back would not be required if the spam posts were being stopped on your server with only a few lines of simple code.
