SpamBlacklist prevents edits that contain URLs whose domains match regular expression patterns defined in specified files or wiki pages. When someone tries to save a page, SpamBlacklist checks the text against a (potentially very large) list of illegal host names. If there is a match, the extension displays an error message to the user and refuses to save the page.
