I notice under my stats on my homepage the following entry:
"Comment spam posts to your site(s): 0"
Well, there could be two reasons for this:
1. I'm new to Project Honey Pot
But more likely:
2. There is no way of reporting comment spam posts other than via manual form post on this website, which I'm already tired of using.
So I can see it's useful for protecting against IP addresses already in the database, but I'm a little more aggressive when is comes to spam (Very hacked Coppermine installation that reports the posting to the abuse department of the ISP/Hosting company it originated from, the owner of the domain being spamvertised, and also the abuse department of the hosting company hosting the spamvertised domain).
At the moment, I'm finding http:BL somewhat useless, as all of the spam in the current wave (Originating from Backlinker from BHSeos - I know because they're bitching on the BHSeos forums about being dobbed in by my Coppermine installation) is coming from previously unknown addresses. There really needs to be a mechanism for reporting back.
