Cant stop xrummer as far as im aware. It sucks i know mate.
But i normally get spammed by xrummer from a russian ip range. Sure it changes but remains within the russian range and therefor is easy to block. Labroccas proxy plugin works ok stopping some also.
I do however run bot traps to catch the stupid ones. Works ok too i might add. Perhaps this will help a little.
Make sure you add a deny in your robots text file if you use it or you will ban google etc lol.
And also try make it one of the first folders on your hosts directory also and link to it at the top of your forum also.
Here is mine in action just to show you how it works. Test it out. You will get banned and have the opportunity to be reinstated. No reg needed to forum ofcourse.

I have a weird thing that happens to my sigs. Its call moderation lol
is it possible to block the Xrumer bot Sad
Here's plug-in that may help out abit...
Add .ru to your email address censor list. It will stop a lot of the bots. Personally...I don't believe that's a bot and you're paranoid. Humans can copy and paste too. What makes you think it's xrummer? On all my sites I have zero evidence of any bot spam activity. And certainly my forums are much bigger than yours.

I think you're still asking for a 100% effective way to stop spam. Guess doesn't exist. Looking at that doesn't even appear to be spam. It's more like a copy/paste of something off a blog.'re so off your rocker

That's a copy and paste off wikipedia. You probably just banned a legit member. Great job!
That was NOT a legit member. There were links linking to HIS SITE in each of the keywords 'payment gateways'. He's a spammer & got past the links thing.


well I think it is because i have the can post links plugin, all my regular signups seem not to be able post links, however these are getting past! i'll take a look at ips and .ru later.

todays one (removed link), this was posted in the graphics forum ffs.

Hi friends,

Being a new user I did not have much idea about how to increase my eBay business. Lots of e-commerce guru’s say that if you want to really make a good impression on your buyers, it’s useful to have a good template design. I was browsing the internet and came across Frooition which has great unique and feature friendly templates, just wanted to share with you, it seems easy to make your eBay stores look great.
To be honest, proper spammers will be able to get past whatever blocks people put up eventually, in my opinion all spam protection really does is slow them down a bit, until they figure out how to get past whatever barriers you put up. The only way I can really think of to stop spam ever appearing on a forum is to moderate all new threads, but that's not a feasible option, it'd be daft to do that. Maybe hire some more active mods, a lot of spam on the comm. forums is deleted within ~10 minutes; a human can always tell what's spam, a computer isn't always so accurate.
On one of my forums i had an area where guests could post. Mainly because i wanted them to spam it up. Now when i tried to stop them it was impossible. Now i suspect they found your place because you have that can post links plugin but may be wrong.
Anyhow i moved the domain to my current forum as a parked domain. So one would expect the spammers to keep coming yes?
Not one as yet and i have had it redirected for about 2 weeks. Now when it was pointed to the old shitty site they would spam on average 20 posts a day. lol. So dunno what to make of that. Pehraps there software was setup to hit that particular forum in the free to post area and once there software stopped working they just moved on to someone else?

Gotta say mate. You have to stop posting these here. Just link to it or something. We dont want this sort of spam to be repeated on Central.
IMHO anyway. We realise you have issues.

New id? whats up with that mate?
Ok seems your getting hit pretty good mate. I would go as far as admin accept for registrations for now anyway.
Do you have capture for registration out of interest?
