the bots seem to have slowed since shutting down my old domain a few days ago.
I have two such old domains pointing to the site I have that's collecting all the Spaminator hits, and I have zero doubt that if I stopped the forwarding or let the domains expire, my bot hit rate would drop dramatically as well. Once a domain is part of a botnet list, it stays on the botnet list.

I recently received a email from one of the sites that is running the vB version of Spaminator and they are at 99,352 bots stopped. That has been running about three years.

It's pretty dramatic, I'm just at 451 since 4 AM. I'd been picking up 60 to 70 per day.
I'm just going to enjoy it while it lasts, 'cause I'm sure they'll get around to me again. :)

Pretty sure that DCU board was hanging around the 120K mark when we switched it to xF, and the old US board was approaching 205K when I finally pulled the plug on it. Matter of fact:

That's three-plus years of running the Spaminator on that, the flagship site for it.

I think you have pretty close to a million bots stopped all-time on the 6 or 7 vB sites that ran on, without even one single successful bot registration.

In Oct of 2016 there was 1.4 million bots stopped. That was the last time I think I recorded the numbers.

Hi everyone! Installed just a few weeks ago. So far 600 spammers caught by the spaminator! :D
I was pretty sure your silence was golden. Glad you're liking the 21st Century Bot Blaster, Dave. Please feel free to make suggestions as you see fit as well.
