Blocking comments that originate from anonymous proxies (3 posts)

    For the past several months my website has been on the receiving end of nasty comments left by a stalker who utilizes anonymous proxies to get around my IP bans.

    I was wondering if anyone knows of any maintained and working plugins for WordPress that work kindof similar to Spam Karma or something in that they check a list (ideally as many lists as possible) of anonymous proxies online and automatically refuse comments that originate from these places.

    I found this one and installed it but I'm not 100% certain that it'll do what I want and I haven't heard back from its creator yet.

    So any ideas?

    i wrote a plugin that will check spamhaus on every click to your site. Consequently, not only can they not comment, they dont even get to waste your bandwidth trying.

    whoo: That looks really interesting but since my issue isn't comment spam but deliberate and harassing stalking, will it work in the same application I needed?
