    Alright today I was hit by major spam, they bypassed captcha and email activation.. and I was gone for one hour and had about 6 join my forum, and spam gay hardcore porn, saw some things that I thought I wouldnt have to see :p Anyways thanks to the Spam cleaner it was just a few clicks and it took care of it. Dont know what I would do without the spam cleaner. Saved me a whole lot of time and problems. So thanks for that devs! Very handy :)

    They also managed to PM members hardcore porn, so I highly recommend the Report Conversations mod which allowed me to be notified of the PMs. Thanks Dismounted :)

    Thanks to stopforumspam I'd be drowning.

    Im talking about a addon for xenforo not a site btw... whats better xen utilities or stopforumspam?

    They both do the same thing, but I think the Stop Forum Spam is specific whereas the Xen Utilities just recently added that functionality.

    XenUtiles has some extra stuff that Stop Forum Spam does not ?

    I'm not sure how either one works.

    I would want one that lets me select what I want to check.
    ip
    email
    username
    and contribute to sfs database

    I have the one on my vB3 site to check ips and email only.
    When it checked username, I got a lot of false positives.
    I get some false positives based on ip.

    I have zen utilities and it has a legit username in the log who is registered.
    I don't really understand how it works.
