Clarification on Vanilla AntiSpam
Hey all. I (along with apparently everyone else) have been having some major issues with spambots lately. I installed Vanilla AntiSpam, hoping that would fix the problem, and got more spam 24 hours later. Going back, however, I see that the plugin actually flagged the post as being spam, it just didn't stop it.
Unfortunately, I have email notification for my forum which is essential for the content, but inconvenient when users get emails for spammy posts. So my question is thus: does the "Delete Spam Automatically" actually delete the post before it gets posted, or will it actually submit the post, triggering an email to users, then delete it after the fact?
