This may be long after the previous posts, but the ProjectHoneypt database is one of the most valuable assets in our fight against spam. It recently blocked more than 1200 spambot visits in less than 36 hours at one domain. Imagine multiplying that over a year or across several domains and you will realize why the database is do valuable, and why we set as much spamtraps as possible.
Obviously you need an appropriate firewall with a local database as well, but we manage to block most spambots in less than 0.03 seconds when the server load is less than 15%. Almost 85% of blocked IPs are from the ProjectHoneypot database.
Well done ProjectHoneypot and members. Keep it up!
