Export Bug Fixed

A lot of the export options have been broken recently due to a bug. I removed the link info to fspamlist.com in the exported files to make them more copy and paste “friendly”. Unfortunately, I didn’t clean up the code well enough and left a bug. I ran across it today and fixed them all.

Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.

Also, thanks again to Steven for getting the blog rolling again. This upgrade looks nice.

Crazy list

Want a crazy “kama-kaze” style ban list? Well, you can surely get it here. With this script, it will take all of the e-mail addresses in my database, strip it down to only the domain name, and add *@ in front of it. This will of course, convert all the e-mail addresses in FSpamList’s database into wildcard domains, adding more blocking power.

You can get this list here: http://www.fspamlist.com/strict.php

and if you need it new-line separated:


Have fun.

Note: this excludes *@hotmail.com , and *@gmail.com .

P.S. Thanks to Steven for fixing this blog. 🙂

Tweaks, Changlog

Due to the size of the database, I’ve forced the export results to display as a file download. Now, any time you want to export the ban lists, you will be prompted with a download window. This makes managing the ban lists a little easier.

Note: Notepad will take a long time opening these files, it is strongly recommended that you use WordPad or similar.

Bug Fix

Fixed a bug in the “Export These Results” link that would often times yield too many results. This was caused by not limiting the results to a certain type of spammer if the user specified one during his/her search.

One other thing…

I’ve updated the code on the view.php page that searches for similarities on both sides of the “@” in a spammer’s e-mail address. So now, more results show up under the “Related Spammers:” section of the page. Note: if there are too many matches for related spammers–not all of them are shown.

A shorter way to search…

I’ve written a little redirect section of code that makes linking to a search query a little easier.

Instead of typing http://www.fspamlist.com/search.php?user=*@mail.ru&type=ALL to search for records on *@mail.ru

you can now use:


Note: This method searches all types by default.


If you’ve been around the site long enough, you know that there has been a lot of small tweaks around the site. Mainly, we are trying to increase security. The changes stem from stuff you see, to a lot of it that you don’t. I will try and recall most of the changes here.

  • You now need to be registered to enter spammer data.
  • Even thou you are registered and logged in, you still need to answer the? security phrase prompt when entering spammers.
  • Now you are able to generate SQL format files to run against your phpbb_banlist table to ban e-mails, but you need to be a registered member to download these. (Goto Export: Emails and choose from the SQL options)
  • All registrations have to go through me before you can log in. Old registrars are “grandfathered” in. It may take 24-48 hours for me to review your account.
  • The forums are now gone. (We have moved to a new server with less bandwidth, and I didn’t see much value in the one we had.)
  • To replace the forum (partially), I have set up a message system where you will receive system messages. You will be alerted by a javascript prompt on the main page (index.php) if you have a new message.
  • There may be other things but I can’t think of any more right now.

It’s a new year and a new day. Hopefully we will have a good 2008!
