At Last! Pligg's Latest Anti-Spam Module

Three words came to mind when I saw that Pligg had released a module for Stop Forum Spam:
If you don't already know, Stop Forum Spam is a database of spammers which can be checked against automatically when a user attempts to sign up for your site.'bout bloody time!
Although I haven't used Pligg for over two years, my site is still ever-present on the dozens of "Pligg Lists" that circulate on the net for spammers to post their ads to.
Hotaru has its own SFS plugin (Stop Spam), but I suspect most of the blacklisted spammers are those that target these CMSs, and as such I haven't found it as useful against Pligg spammers as I had expected.
However, I hope that will change soon as Pligg users adopt chuckroast's new SFS Global Antispam module. My only hope is that Stop Forum Spam can handle the load! Before I banned India, I submitted over a hundred spammers to SFS in the space of 4 weeks - and that's just me! Therefore, I'll join chuckroast in suggesting users donate to SFS to keep it afloat.
