they create new accounts under different names and send new messages.
I do not know how to fight. after blocking the user, messages remain. Can you modify the plugin to delete messages from the admin panel? I do not see another solution

Having contact form instead would lead to same problem. Best way is to check ip of user and ban its whole submask, or just placing recaptcha into create thread.. if you submit more and more messages, recaptcha gets harder and harder

This spammers can be humans so recaptcha wouldn't work, i have a high traffic site and it works very well for them to advertise links in personal messages. they just say hi, visit this site www.site.com and do that x1000. having a banword "site" would make my job much more simple instead having to go into database, search messages where s_message LIKE %site%
for 4 years i am fighting spam everyday and everyday they find new ways to bypass. Banwords is the best solution for this

They are adding spam messages from accounts that are not as users nor have they been created by users.

You have to implement recaptcha in the plugin because this is automated submission.

Without recaptacha the plugin is useless because it annoys users with spam.
