Bad Behavior and speed? (5 posts)

    Anyone know how to speed up the comments when using Bad Behavior? The plugin is fantastic, but it really slows down commenting.

    I have hunted around, haven't seen any threads on this.

    I have the same problem! It only started a few months ago...until then, there wasn't any lag and everything worked normally.

    Bad Behavior does DNS lookups to query blackhole lists to see if the commenter is a known spammer at the time the comment is submitted. If your host's DNS servers are slow, then this stage of Bad Behavior will also be slow.

    In other words, it's your web host and there's not a whole lot I can do about it.

    This can be fixed by editing the blackhole file and commenting out the dns server or servers that are slowing you down.

    I'm sure this is a great plugin for many, but I won't use it anymore either. After installing several new plugins my server became so slow I was afraid it was dying on me. I uninstalled the new plugins in the reverse order I installed them in and my server regained light-speed after uninstalling bad behavior.

    So, I'm sure "error" is gonna whine and cry about this not being Bad Behavior's fault again, like in all the topics in here, but the fact remains that this is the only plugin that made my board no fun to visit up till now.
