This is a port of an addon I made for vBulletin back in September of 2014

The settings for the mod can be found under, [OzzModz] Block Registrations With Spam Like Email Addresses

Note:
The error message they see when they exceed the maximum dots is this:

"The administrator has blocked the email you have entered for containing to many special characters. Please try a different email address."

I would not suggest changing it and saying something like, " you entered to many dots " or some such as this will just tip the spammers off.

Frequently Asked Questions.

Q.
Why do I need such a thing, you ask?

A. I have seen a rash of users joining sites, with multi dotted or multi special characters email addresses, and 99.9% of the time these are spammers, usually human ones. So by adding this you can prevent them from registering.
