phpbb2: Improved anti-spam

In the works, starting with better logging of origin countries in the logs.

Sadly Country is a major factor with spam.

As kind of half expected logging reveals issues with ban control by Country.

Hopefully fixed now. We shall see.

Finally got this fixed a little over an hour ago:

Code:

24016 Banbycountry -9999   Banbycountry TranThuHAng ( CN ) 118.182.20.242 15 Feb 2011 10:01 am
24015 Banbycountry -9999   Banbycountry ( CN ) 59.58.175.246 15 Feb 2011 09:40 am
24014 Banbycountry -9999   Banbycountry ( CN ) 59.58.175.246 15 Feb 2011 09:27 am
24013 Banbycountry -9999   Banbycountry ( CN ) 118.182.246.56 15 Feb 2011 09:19 am
24012 Banbycountry -9999   Banbycountry( CN ) 218.56.50.213 15 Feb 2011 08:59 am
24011 Banbycountry -9999   Banbycountry ( CN ) 218.56.50.213 15 Feb 2011 08:59 am
24010 Banbycountry -9999   Banbycountry ( CN ) 113.105.85.6 15 Feb 2011 08:46 am


Which is in the "Log actions" log in the admin panel shows a wealth of information.
All Chinese, about 6 attempts an hour, all but one have not managed to enter a username, and so are falling at the first hurdle and are likely to be spambots.
What is not fully tracked is that we never have had even one spammer per hour actually getting though the old defenses. So possibly even probably TranThuHAng would not have made it anyway.
All the same a valuable addition.
Remember you set this up in ban control in the admin panel.

I have VN in my ban control. These are my log actions today...
