WWW::StopForumSpam - Perl extension for the StopForumSpam.com API
StopForumSpam is a Anti Spam Database for free usage. Even though aimed towards preventing registration of spambots on a forum, this extension can be used for any type of website (e.g. blog) as well.
An API key is only needed for reporting a new case of spam registration.
use WWW::StopForumSpam; my $sfs = WWW::StopForumSpam->new( api_key => "", # optional timeout => 4, # cURL timeout in seconds, defaults to 4 treshold => 65, # defaults to 65 ); # Returns 1 if spammer (caution: it will return 1 also on errors, this is to # prevent mass spam registration due to services not working properly, you # should therefor always check logs) $sfs->check( ip => "127.0.0.1", # optional, recommended email => "test\@test.com", # optional, recommended username => "Foobar", # optional, not recommended ); # Alternative api call via DNSBL. Does not support usernames. # Unlike check() this will NOT return 1 on server fail. $sfs->dns_check( ip => "127.0.0.1", email => "test\@test.com", ); # Requires the setting of "api_key" in the constructor $sfs->report( username => "Foobar", # required ip_addr => "127.0.0.1", # required evidence => "", # optional (for example the forum-post) email => "test\@test.com", # required ); );
