This extension looks promising:
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... orum_spam/
From the description of the extension:Might be worth a try.Extension will query the stop forum spam database on registration and posting (for guests only) and deny the post and or registration to go through if found.
- Will log an entry in the ACP if so set.
- Extension sends usernames, emails and IP addresses to a third party server. Via HTTP when adding and via HTTPS when querying (email is hashed upon querying).
- Works with the Contact Admin Extension to disallow those trying to use the Contact Admin extension to submit.
- Ability to report a users post to Stop Forum Spam database with API key from within viewing a topic (admins and mods only). Can't report mods or admins.
Hopefully it helps.
I'll be absent until January 11, so I won't be able to delete spam accounts during the coming month.
