Forum spam filter problem

One of my users tried to post a message on our forum, but he got a message that it appeared to contain spam and was deleted.

He e-mailed the text to me, and I tried to paste it into his most recent post, and I got the same message.

I have the Spam-X plugin turned OFF in the forum settings. Where else should I be looking? What are the characteristics that would cause a message to be flagged as spam? About the only things I could think would do it were his enthusiastic use of all caps and exclamation points.

Anybody?
I have no idea what I'm doing.

You should find a note in the spamx.log file indicating why it was rejected.

bye, Dirk

Hello,

is it possible to use spam filtering using Spam-x and fForum 2.3.2?
I can't seem to find any info regarding this and has been hit recently :/

In other words you're suggesting that I should upgrade?

How can I fight spam in 2.3.2 other than using IP baning as this is rather like fighting the windmills Wink

What forum version is running here on geeklog.net?
