WAITING FOR VALIDATION??? NEW USER REGISTRATIONS

VALIDATION SETTINGS CURRENTLY EMAIL MY OLD ACCOUNT (WHICH IS NOW BEING REVIEWED) FOR ALL ACCOUNTS THAT WERE BLOCKED FOR NUMEROUS REASONS. SOME ARE BLOCKED ON ERROR.

 

I HAVE 3,555 MESSAGES TO GO THROUGH. 99.9% ARE LEGITIMATE BLOCKS.

 

HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS:

 

Online Databases contain information on known IP addresses, email addresses and other variables that are reported by forums (including ours) when a user is marked as spam. I get a report like this:

Registration BlockA user has been blocked from registering. Details regarding the registration attempt have been provided below.
Username: Tabbesealketa1
IP Address: 5.254.144.200
Email Address: hallal659@rondecuir.us

Username Records: 0 (StopForumSpam)
IP Records: 1220 (StopForumSpam)
Email Records: 255 (StopForumSpam)
Threat Level: n/a (ProjectHoneyPot)
For more information regarding the history of this user, visit the following websites.
Lookup Username on StopForumSpam
Lookup IP Address on StopForumSpam
Lookup Email Address on StopForumSpam
Lookup IP Address on ProjectHoneyPot
Report provided by Stop Spammer Registration for IP.Board

As you can see, this user has 255 records for that email address reported as SPAM and 1220 for that IP address. So, the odds are very strong that it is a spammer. However, sometimes I will see a user with only a few IP records as the only reason for blocking, which is a potential real user because IPs are dynamically assigned (in many cases) so a user logged in with one that was marked as bad. These need reviewing.. It will take some time.
