I have 2 places on a website I support where comment can be made, one for the site in general and one connected to a newsletter.
A month or so ago I added a http:BL call to the script processing those comments, just dumping the results back to me in an email so I could see "who" was giving me all these great drug offers. <g> Really a low level of traffic, about one a day, 43 last month.
Yesterday I added a dnsbl query to the front end, before displaying the comment form/screen. Got my first rejection last night, a comment spammer I have seen several times, threat score of 65.
Wonder what they thought of the new 403.6 return status?
In the spirit of 'Give a math guy 2 or more data points and he wants to draw a graph,' now do I want to add the info to a database for easier analysis? Decisions decisions.
