Updated the Stop Spammers plug-in to version 2020.4.4. This is a minor update consisting mainly of "code cleanup" (a good deal of which amounted to deleting blank lines in the source code--gotta keep those diversity hires busy and away from something which actually affects operation of the program!) and then a "fixes to fixes" update to correct bungling in the clean-up. (Cleaning up PHP code which interfaces to WordPress is like sorting the contents of the septic tank into neat piles.) A total of 52 files were modified in this exercise of digging holes and filling them in again. I integrated our local code in the two files containing it, which was straightforward as there were no conflicts, syntax checked all modified files, confirmed correct integration of local code with ../t/ratdiff, and applied the update kit. Everything looks OK after installation. Nothing appears to have gone pear-shaped after the installation of the Stop Spammers plug-in version 2020.4.4 update, so I committed the changes (Build 483) and published them on GitHub.
