    hey Gary, still around?

    what is the news about montyspam? my wpmu version expires today, so I'll be hit by another spam/splog wave soon. Could you add more time please?

    Also the other version I tested for you is expiring today and I wasn't able to reach you by email.

    Religion or plague? You decide. :)

    I extended the time already. And this should be the last - I know I've said that before but a 'plague' of jobs hit me just as I was finishing up. (It frustrated me too!)

    Hi,

    macgruder,

    I have used your plugin but it keeps poping up the follow message when I try to sign-up

    Verification: Please verify that you are a legitimate user.
    Please check here to confirm you are a real user.:

    I have checked the checkbox, but still it returns to the sign up page, also there is no incoming spam record in the montyspam admin page, and also no email sent out.

    Is there anything about my php version or extension or what other possible reason?

    Thanks.

    I am litchi, I also tried the comment, it seems no comment can be posted in my site also, so it's very sad that I have to disable the plugin montyspam by now, hope anybody can help me.

    :)

    Hi Ovidiu,

    Thanks for your reply, but since if I turn this plugin on, all the user will not be able to registe and post comment, so I can not open it currently, I have switched to wp-hashcash, it seems it's also an excellent plugin.

    I think maybe that's because the ip address of my ISP was blocked, is that true?

    I got up this morning and found 40 spam comments and an expired Monty spam, so I just down loaded a new copy and installed it.

    Anyone know why montyspam.net is down? Its hanging my backend if I try to go into the montyspam admin screen

    Seems to be back now, but I guess it checks the site to determine its expiry date and if its not there it hangs.

    I've found that you have to wait for it to expire before downloading.
