    Hi,

    Is there away to stop StopForumSpam checking Username and only check Email and IP?
    As I am getting to many false positives

    Unfortunately there isn't an option to do that.

    Could I comment out the below code in SpamPrevention.php on line 926?
    As this appears to be the api check.

    Code:
    . (isset($user['username']) ? '&username=' . urlencode($user['username']) : '')

    Did that work for you?

    Seriously, this is a major annoyance.
