As I am developing my own CMS, this kind of problem is interesting to solve.
I think it is most efficient to have code that adds IPs to the .htaccess file rather than a plugin that checks IPs against a database.Quote:
It automatically denies their IP through the .htaccess file.
Some problems with that approach is that it inflates your web stats with garbage, and wastes bandwidth.Quote:
But on my blog....they end up at my main page.
Nor me, but that list I used is only covering small sub nets rather than say: 222. If we build our own ban list, it may not work since every time it may be a new IP.Quote:
I'm not a fan of mass IP range banning
