Spam Busted is a free service with 1,275,197 spammer IP, Email, and Usernames of reported spammer submissions that you can check or add to by adding a small amount of code to your site. Once our code is added to your site, we can help keep your site(s) clean and spam free!
Our database contains reports of forum spam, article directory spam, comment spammers, script hackers, flood bots, zombies, rule breakers, site abusers, signature & email address spammers, harveting bots & scrapers, known bad spiders, criminal hosting services, spam/hacker networks and signup bots. Any site that allows signups, comments, posts or articles can benefit from our blocking service which can instantly reduce abusers from signing up or leaving spam comments on your site!
We offer two free services (which Requires an API Key) to help stop spammers from abusing your article directory, forum, blog site or any site that allows users to signup and leave comments. First is the service to check if someone signing up on your site is already listed in our database (which requires no API Key), and secondly, a service for site owners to send us the data of blocked spammers (which also Requires an API Key) as you find and/or ban them. This second free service helps our fellow site owners from having your reported spammer also abuse their site(s)!

How this works to stop spammers.
Once you've added the code to check our database for existing spammer listings and gotten an API key here, your site will send us each signup request's ip number, email address and username, which will be checked against our database of submitted spammers.
If the new signup is in our database, we will instantly send back a notification to your site(s), and you can send the suspected spammer wherever you wish (other than your signup page!), effectively blocking the suspected spammer from abusing your site(s). They will not be able to signup on your site!
Once you get an API Key from us, you can also send your detected and/or banned spammers by adding some code to your site, which will help others avoid your banned signup!
If you wish to get an API Key to help other site owners reduce their site's spam signups, please click on the Get API Key link to your right!
You also need to signup & get an API Key if you'd like to submit spammers manually or check our database. You can do this here
Please note that just because someone is listed here doesn't necessarily mean they are a spammer. Some people may have had their accounts hijacked or spoofed. To dispute a listing of your ip, or email address, please contact us here
Why am I doing this?
For years now, my sites have been abused by spammers (just like everyone else's on the Internet), and I was mostly ineffective in stopping them (give up on the htaccess blocks now!). This site is my decision to take a stand against those spammers, and (hopefully) help others that are just as tired of the spam abuse as I am.
Why don't I have a donation link? Because I don't want anyone to feel any pressure to donate when I am simply doing something I enjoy, and I want my service to be absoultely free.
I'd like to finish by saying, thank you to all that have supported me over the years, and now it's my turn to give back to you!
