Don't be put off by the name of this extension, it isn't just for furums! It will work for any user registration or comment system

Stop Forum Spam

This event filter will check any user registration, or blog/forum comment with the Stop Forum Spam service to see if it has been registered as a spammer.

The filter will perform an ip address check, and check the posted fields for a username and email (neither field are required). If neither fields are available, the filter will return dependent on the ip address only. The more data provided, the more chance of catching spammers! Note that if one of the three checks fails, the whole event fails. All three are displayed so you can reference which one failed if you wish.

The filter doesn't expect you to provide hidden fields specifically for this service, and will use your standard username and email inputs. If you want to set the names of the fields, they are hardcoded at the top of the extension (this will be updated to provide translations correctly in an update). The IP is generated by the extension for you.

Any ideas to make this better? Let me know!
