Hello all, long time no talkie talkie.
I'm soliciting feedback on a proposed plugin to Spam Karma 2 that would basically utilize SK2's blacklist to block comment spammers at the Apache level using mod_security. I've asked DrDave's opinion and now I'm asking the rest of the WP community their thoughts.
I've just gotten sick of expending resources -- both my personal ones and server resources -- on spammers and if I can hit them earlier in the process (e.g. at the request level rather than at the WP level) then I'm happier.
Details here. All comments encouraged. Thanks in advance.
