Loved vB's method, so this is nice. Downloaded and imported without a problem in about 3 to 5 minutes total. Did not stop once - Anyone whose import stops has low php setting(s) as often is the case with VPS. I do not encourage registrations except from serious people (tech forum). It may screen out a few serious people, but one can not expect 100% accuracy. Thanks for the file. Very much appreciated!
I downloaded and installed it on XF2 2.0.7. I finally got all 7.3K banned emails imported but I had to keep importing the xml after it stopped 3 or 4 times, but it finally got them all (I think). I tried creating a few new accounts with some of the bogus emails and the registrations were stopped in their tracks. This is great.
Reinstalled this with the May 2018 update, and it went through. The 'Unique' warning still showed, but checking the list by date showed a ton from this add on. This is vital, excellent work, and it would be nice if XenForo updates included such ( permanently ) banned lists. Let's face it, a bad email provider doesn't ever become good...
I would have loved this --- bearing in mind XenForo's inadequacies in this area --- but I got one of those cutsie Oops warnings, which said: 'All banned_email values must be unique.'
I daresay there were addresses already listed in the filter on this old, but new to XenForo, forum; but tolerances should be loose enough to *allow* duplicates instead of stalling the install. No-one is going to manually cross-check 3000 odd addresses with 3000 odd other addresses.
The author is excellent. It is XenForo screwing up.
Holy ^!@?, This is amazing! I appreciate this alot, I didn't know I needed this until saw this post. I know eventually its going to help my community and crack down on spammers/fake accounts! Again, I very much appreciate this!
