For what it's worth, I started doing the human verification patch and ran into some descrepency in the directions. I never got it working. I have since been diligent to put all of the offending IPs in the ip block tool. I had to learn how to do IP searches where the url was given but the end result has been from getting 5 or 10 link and xxx spams daily, I haven't had one in 2 or 3 weeks. When I get one I put the ip in the box. In total there were only about 15 ips spamming me. Alot from France.

So, I found the IP block has been easy and worked the best.

Regards,
Gary

I rewrote the Human Verification instructions a while back so ANYBODY could follow them.

Hi,

Can i ban Anonymous IP Spammers too?

The simple antispam mod doesn't seem to be working anymore.
Actually, it does work, but new spammers, mostly from france keep coming back (laughing). The same spammers, but with different ip's.

Have a look at the human verification mod found in the advanced guestbook forum.

I was getting alot from France also but when I started adding them to the IP ban it totally stopped after I added about 15 or 20 ips. I don't know about the anonymous ip, tell me more, but for IP ips the IP ban works good if you stay consistent for a few weeks. I haven't had a spam in over a month, maybe two. If you want I can send you my banned IPs list. It might save you some frustration.

Hi Gary,

The spammers have bogus ip's and have their proxy set to random.
Same spammers, different ip's.
You can also get hundreds of proxy's including the port numbers that go with it from the internet. I hate these kind of spammers. It's not easy to get rid of.

Well, that makes me curious/wonder why I haven't had them because I was getting about 5 a day or more. I know for sure I'm in their files.

I been thinking about going back to my websites and scrambling the mailto: email addresses. I have about 10 emails listed over about 1500 pages up now.

I already have scrambled my email address but spam still comes. I use Spamihilator on my machine to filter spam. As for the guestbooks I think a lot of it comes from "viruses". I use the term virus because I mean a malicious piece of software.
