    I have a lot of spam users signing up with email addresses containing strings like...

    '@hushmail'
    '142@'

    If I add the following to banned emails then will it block these specific strings...

    '*@hushmail'
    '*142@'

    It is best to target email domains, like:

    *@hushmail.com

    That will work.

    But email banning is a cat and mouse game. I recommend CAPTCHA:

    I had that stuff on with VB but it didnt help too much. Plus I wanted to target specific spammers.

    For example I had over 100 spam accounts registered that looked something like this...

    ......142@.....

    Basically a random name and a well known domain (like live.com) but the common denominatory was always '142@'

    So wont it work if i do...

    *@142
