This morning I had 2 of 4 registrations pending in pun_approval that were already in stopforumspam database - BUT only since a couple of hours.... however both IPs had been reported 8 (!) times in the last 6 hours... starting 5.x hours before I checked.... (I think they're taking advantage of night time reduced moderator activity)
So the question is: wouldn't it make sense to query the sfs-db every 3 hours for registrations completed in last 3 hours and delete any user whose IP was found?
That shouldn't put unnecessary load on the sfs-db I assume...
I was told that instead of querying the sfs db one could download the list mentioned below.. if we had some script that gets it every 4-5 hours (wget and unzip) - that would permit a query of recent registrations (daily, weekly) without sending lots of queries and also faster as serverside
Updated once per hour
listed_ip_1.zip - Last 24 hours, limited to 6 downloads per IP per day, last update 05-Oct 06:00 EDT
Now the question is; can this be implemented in "deluxe" extension - or does such a script need to be loaded seperately?
