Simple Machines Forum

Hi All
New to the forum, but have been using this integrated to my 'Simple Machines Forum' for some time.

I seem to be getting false positives, ie users trying to register are told they are spammers, I look at the log messages, but when I search for either their email or IP address - I do not seem to find a match on this site.

I am currently using version version 1.0 on my site, so will look to upgrade the plugin - but is this a likely solution ?

Thx
Lee

Re: Simple Machines Forum

Hi !

Do you perform a check with the username ?
This can lead to false positives (username are not unique across many forums) ...
Could you check by the webform only with the email's domain ?
Maybe this (these) domain(s) is (are) classified as spammer's domain(s).
