When the 'Contact Us' form is used to send an email, the following will take place (if configured):

  • email address provided by the user will be checked against the list of "non-registrable email addresses" in your ban filters.
  • email address provided by the user will be checked against various online resources to determine if email address is likely to be that of a known spammer.
  • IP address of the sender will also be checked against various online resources to determine if the IP address is that of a known spammer.

See this post for the background:

Huge thanks to Nathan Explosion for this simple, lightweight plug-in. I let it run for a few weeks since installing and its stopped my perpetual stalking spammers 100%.

This is a great way to stop repeat spammers from emailing you via your IPS contact form. If you have someone who spams you regularly (even just once) via the contact form, add them to your IPS ban filters and relax, you've prevented them from signing up and spamming you at the same time. 

Why IPS never adopted this suggestion I don't know (once again, hang your heads in shame!), but its simple, it works great for me and so I thank Nathan for answering the call to arms. Recommended.

Response from the author:

Thanks for that mate. And just think....that spammer is oblivious to the fact.

This is a must have and should be built into IPS. If you are using the contact us feature, install this to prevent spam.
