XF 2.0 Spamming the contact us form

I'm getting a few emails per day via the contact us form, all .ru accounts. They are managing to circumvent the captcha.

I've got all .ru accounts banned in my admin area but still these emails keep coming. Does the ban list not affect the contact us form?

You might like this addon,

And no, the banned emails are not prevented from using the contact us form.

Thanks I'll have a look.

You can turn off contuct us for the unregistered groups.
I need none members to be able to contact us if necessary. I think I'll add that plug-in, but it is a shame that by default, the same rules for registration don't apply to the contact form.

I'm finding that the same bots that are being blocked from registering are the same spamming the contact us form.

There is a open suggestion for that,

My (free) "Contact Us Threads" add-on implements a banned email list for the contact us form. With the option to silently discard contact us form entries if they are in the list (ie shadow banned).

Hmmm... any way to import the regular banned email list into that list?

Answering my own question, yes. Go to the regular banned email list and export.

Then go to the banned emails (contact) list and import what you just exported.
