IP Ban Options

    Although you can easily edit a .htaccess file, the time it takes to simply ban someone is unnecessary - you can end up having to open up a hosting control panel or FTP client, connect, browse through folders prior to revising one single file. I propose that users should have the ability to add IP bans to their .htaccess file through their WordPress control panel.

    Something like this, maybe?

    Maybe - could it encompass the following:-

    - IP/IP Range Ban (as with WP-Ban)
    - IP Access restrictions (e.g. disable comment posting/specific page viewing)
    - Referrer/hostname ban (as with WP-Ban)

    Maybe it could build towards Askimet-style database of all reported spammers/site abusers could create a database of known IP addresses, and thus blacklist those who repeated offenses on all sites participating in this scheme?
