Hi,

I installed this addon and kept the default maximum of 2 periods. I tested it by trying to sign up with a fake email address with many periods and it worked flawlessly. However, two spammer/bots have gotten through since I installed it using email addresses like: ab.d.umu.hamm.ad.ali.t.m.p@gmail.com

I tried another test signup using that email address and was blocked so I think they're bypassing the registration system somehow.

Any ideas?

More than likely they changed their email after registering, I had it happen on my site. I need to adjust the addon to count that.

If your website is Snog's Xenforo Mods & Add-ons website, then I know as I just got a Conversation notice over there and was the same spam my members are being hit with.

Thank you for all your hard work on this, crossing fingers your adjustment will do the trick!
