The blacklist again…

It is wonderful if you know that a plan is working – especially if it’s your own one. Regarding the WP-Blackcheck plugin, it might even fot more here as I was observing less and less spam comments into the moderation queues of the sites I manage. To get some numbers I tried to deactivate a number of other anti spam plug ins and compared the numbers.

It really is just a small number of god dammed hosts hammering our blogsphere. So it is just the blacklisting that keeps off most of the buggers making the other checks quite obsolete saving ressources.

At the moment of this writing the blacklist lists 215 IP Addresses which are hitting me and the other users regularly – But how many blogs do use the plugin? I cannot tell an exact number but it can’t be more than 25 sites by now…
