7. [GlowHost] Spam-O-Matic – Spam Firewall stops forum spam – Every forum needs to block out Spam. I use this spam blocker on all my forums making this a top free vBulletin mod!
8. VSa – Login To User Account – In my opinion, VSa makes darn good mods. similar to his popular Sub Forum manager, I find VSa Login to user accounts very powerful for a free mod. The advantage of being able to logging into other users accounts it to see if you applied proper permissions around the site. You don’t want regular usergroups accessing premium areas. This is a good way to verify.
