Forum Spam Automstion Script
« on: November 24, 2019, 04:49:18 AM »
This is more of collaborative effort than a code challenge. I would like to foster a server side script that would query the awaiting members requesting membership and validate they're not in the StopForumSpam database before approval. Besides deleting the spammer I would like to ban them as well so they can't re-register again.

This project touches on SQL database access, web service access and running as scheduled task. I will be happy to share this with any forum administrator running SMF.

The StopFormSpam site has a download of the most toxic IP addresses which I plan to build a ban list from. That should eliminate most of the spam registrations.
