Fighting the spammers can be a never-ending battle that ebbs and flows. I've got the honeypot key and stopforumspam going. I have TAC stophumanspam. I have new threads limited to 5 per 24 hours so no spammer gets more then 5 in. I'd like to limit new threads even more for new members but haven't seen a method or add-on to do so. I have 10 members/mods with access to the spam cleaner. We are having to clean about 5 spam incidents per day. Some get caught in moderation because I have spam phrases in stophumanspam. Is Akismet worth the $5 a month? They say 75k monthly checks. Does Xenforo check only on new registrations or are there other processes that will check the Akismet database? I get a lot of the vashikaran/love marriage solution crap as well as the health/suppliments/nonsense. Any more advice on how to get rid of these no-good varmits?
