You're not spamming, but your breaking of the thread was not great. You should have posted your follow-up message as a "reply" to your own post instead. Changing the Subject was OK and appropriate, but by using the "reply" function you would have likely preserved the thread (due to the In-Reply-To and/or References header).

You need to apply the jumbo patch or use an existing unofficial build made with the jumbo patch already applied. Such a build for Windows (as that's what you're using) is currently linked from the JtR homepage: http://www.openwall.com/john/#contrib "126.96.36.199 + jumbo patch revision 6 build for Win32 (2.1 MB) by Erik Winkler" > Yes, i have done the following: > In john.conf (or john.ini if you're running on Windows), rename the old > [List.Rules:Wordlist] section to [List.Rules:Disabled] to deactivate it. > Rename the [List.Rules:NT] section to [List.Rules:Wordlist]. Great. IIRC, the need for using an unofficial build of JtR for this was mentioned both in the old posting you referenced and in a comment in john.conf right above the [List.Rules:NT] section.
