Additional Anti spam measure

Post by wololo » Wed Jul 31, 2013 4:28 pm

Today I added support for ZBBlock on this forum, to reduce the amount of spammers we get daily on this forum Unfortunately, this means that some legitimate users who use VPNs, TOR, or other such services, might end up automatically blacklisted from the site. If you run into issues, feel free to email me directly, wagic.the.homebrew@gmail.com, and we'll figure something out.

If you need US PSN Codes, this technique is what I recommend.

Several legit users of the forum got blocked by this antispam system, so I need to figure out a way to tone it down. I have deactivated it for now

I am not able to sign in on my home network (Real IP Address)
I have to use a Web Proxy in order to access /talk


Otherwise I receive this:

EDIT: Nevermind, Wololo resolved it via email. Thanks!

We followed up offline and cleared things up, but basically your computer got blocked because it has malware installed on it, so this was a case where the anti spam filter actually worked correctly. Just wanted to post here to confirm that if people contact me I am genuinely trying to help solve your issues, our goal is definitely not to block legit users :)
