Yes, I did. All was clean.
If you have my last mail, please reply and tell me what anti-spam plugin you're using and what version, and I'll look into it further. Since I'm into web design and programming, I guess the PHP source code will easily reveal what blocks legit users from registering.

Is it this one?

Yes, exactly. That would be great.

Mike,
I installed on a server MyBB for testing. I added stopforumspam plugin and I tested various confidence levels using my credentials. Only when I selected 0% confidence level I was rejected.

So my advice would be to relax it to 20%.

I can confirm that I can not access this forum when I travel overseas (using the same account), in some countries. Romania is on the list.

The same problem I have with hhoforums.

The IP is the reason.

I too was rejected as a "known spammer" but it helped to be persistent.
It has been quite refreshing to be able to read the many posts from members without the immediate attack by the "experts" decrying how this or that proves it cannot work.
Cheers

I would love to deactivate this module, but the problem is that until I started using it, we were getting buried in spam. It made the forum nearly unusable. But I apologize for the problems it may cause our users.
