hehe no worries :)

I'm actually hoping that modifying the SBST to not auto-block based on any of the 3 vars being blacklisted, isn't going to result in less being blocked when it should actually be blocked (it's great that it'll result in less F/P's, but if it results in less spammers being blocked, I'll have to look at what I can do to improve it whilst keeping the F/P possibility down)

What about allowing multiple cases to be selected.  As we have ours setup to be email and IP, and we can set it up to be email and username, but we can't set it up to be either of the two....then again, I think I've pretty much used up all my 'how about doing this' tokens ;)

hehe no problem :)

As an aside, I'm a huge Meatloaf fan ;) (got every single one of his albums, mostly on vinyl too hehe (cept the newer ones of course, can't find nor afford them on vinyl, so just got 'em on CD, gonna get them on vinyl when I can afford them))

Btw, you can modify it to allow multiple selections ("2,3|1,3|1,2") by modifying the switch selections accordingly;

Code: [Select]
case "[selection]"
Then modifying the case code to allow for it. For example, for 2,3 and 1,3, the code would be;

Code: [Select]
case "2,3|1,3": // Match IP and E-mail or Username and E-mail
if($bIP == 'True' && $bMail == 'True' || $bUsername == 'True' && $bMail == 'True'){$bFoundMatch = true;}else{$bFoundMatch = false;}
break;
