People get blacklisted because they save a topic with something as simple as

http://myname.dhsfs.com   >

I have put 3 spaces between the com and the > to avoid getting blacklisted from here.

Tried to delete the data files in pub/TWiki/BlackListPlugin and let it create new files.

The _spam_merge.txt contains the line

</pre> # 2005-11-12:WM

and this becomes |>| in _spam_regex.txt

The minutes I delete the two the plugin stops blacklisting these innocent entries. But soon the files are overwritten and hell is loose again. I believe I know why now.

Looking at the regex in BlackListPlugin.pm line 285

$text =~ s/<[^>]*//go;      # strip <tags>

This leaves behind > from any tag in the merged spam pattern file.

If I change it to

$text =~ s/<[^>]*>//go;      # strip <tags>
I no longer get the > in _spam_regex.txt

Remember that I have no checkin access to SVN so someone must implement this fix. -- KJL

Peter fixed this while I made this bug report.

Closed with SVN 8084. Thanks Peter
