This mod prevents the posting of topics or personal messages containing black listed urls. It uses the Wikipedia black list and a user created custom black list.

After installing check with your host provider if it uses a HTTP Proxy for external connections and if so enter it in Admin -> Features and Options -> Basic Features.

If the Mod does not catch spam URLs look for the wikipedia_black_list.txt file in /attachments. If it is empty (0 bytes) then you have connection problems. Recheck the HTTP Proxy address and wait for one hour to try again.

CUSTOM BLACK LIST
A custom black list can be created.
Create a file named custom_black_list.txt in the attachments directory.
Each line on that file is a regular expression to be blocked. Do not forget to escape the dots with a backslash.

Sample black list:

intblog\.org # this will block the whole domain
subdomain\.domain\.tld # this will block only the subdomain

My custom black list can be used as a start point:
http://codepoint.net/attachments/custom_black_list.txt
