Blacklist Feed IP Addresses

    Currently, we can block comments by IP address. I'd like to see a feature that blocks IP addresses for feeds, thus thwarting feed scrapers when they identified, protecting our blog content from being used without permission.

    Full version WordPress blogs can do this with access to the .htaccess but what about adding it so non-technical users and WordPress.com users can blog these content pirates from abusing our blog content by allowing us to block them from accessing our feeds with their IP address.

    Hmm, I can't decide if this would be better left to a plugin or not. It's a tossup, but I'm leaning toward plugin.

    I still think this is a good idea although there are plenty of plugins already available to help combat unwanted feed use.
