    Has anybody gotten an massive increase in people spamming this free ipods, ps2, xboxs, etc. junk! It has almost become a full time job on my site banning these people! I have had to add domain names and referer codes to the censor to cut down on the posting. I am about to go nuts!

      It would be interesting if we could program the censor to replace the codes with our own

            This is what I have banned so far since yesterday, and these are just the domain names without the .com or .net, etc. These also include ones they redirect to bypass the censor. I put them in the { } just so it bans those words.

            I have also blocked the following typical referral info as well:

            ?r=
            ?referral=
            ?referer=
            ?r=
            ?ref=
            ?refer=

            I figured at the minimum it inconveniences them and they won't get credit for the referrals!

                Ha... Ha... I see vBulletin has blocked a few of them as well
                The ones it looks like it is blocking are listed below... just remove the X

                  Whenever I see something like that, I find their e-mail and make good, revengeful use of it.

                    Thanks, I added those URLs to the censorship words.

                          why not? Might as well get free stuff while in the process of annoying em
