My ip has been blocked on your bot database. Help!
« on: February 12, 2009, 01:22:03 PM »
Hi. I was trying to integrate fSpamList on my phpbb3 forum.
To test if it was working i use a known spammer username and try to register on my forum. I was blocked. Perfect!
The problem is my IP was sent to your bot database and its blocking me from posting im my own forum. :o :o :o :o :o

Here is the entry at "Most Recently Caught Bots" :
Feb 12th, 2009 2:47pm embormbeteoma soovtovichsofttwtest@gmail.com 85.138.160.10

Can anyone help me?
cheers

Mike

Live and learn, lol. :) No problem, we've removed that entry from our database.

Please let me know if there is anything else we can do for you.

 This is the 2nd request like this today. I think it's time to institute the "$500 per IP" removal fee, lol. ;)

Please don't PM me for assistance- post your questions in the forum where others can see them.

Out of interest, what were you using to do the test? (e.g. SBST or a custom script or some such?)

Can't remember putting BS submission features into the Spambot Search Tool (though if you were testing using the hosted versions at temerc.com, fspamlist.com or avant.it-mate.co.uk, you MUST ensure you do not enter your IP with known spammer emails/usernames, as those will be auto-submitted to fspamlist.com as spammers IP's)
