  • thanks!

    hey trey, I tried to leave a comment on your website asking if you have a newer version seeing that BB is at 2.2.1 right now but it seems as if my comment didn’t go through…

    Hm strange that the comment didn’t go through. Never saw one for approval and didn’t see it blocked by Akismet.

    In the next few days I’ll have the updated version out.

    – Trey

    it was very strange – comment went through, then it disapeared and I saw: “-1 Comments” !?

    Tried refreshing but it didn’t help.
    Anyway, thanks for keeping this plugin updated.

    Try leaving another comment and making note of the exact time. That concerns me that it may be keeping others from commenting.

    – Trey

    Sure, check this out:
    And after pressing the post comment button this happens:

    time: a few seconds before the timp stamp of this post 😉

    I’ve uploaded bad-behavior-wpmu-2.2.2 , see here,

    – Trey

    thanks 🙂

    oh, sorry forgot to ask: did you chat with the guy managing BB? Is there a chance he’ll integrate your multi-site changes into the main version?

    hm, just realized the multi-site issues are listed under the known errors page:

    found an IP range that needs whitelisting but my comment on BB author’s page is awaiting moderation so I’ll post it here too:

    I think I have found a legitimate service in need of whitelisting.
    My BB log shows 29 similar entries:

    Now I know it http:BL: lists this IP as suspicious but a whois returns:

    NetRange: -
    NetName:        GOOGLE
    NetHandle:      NET-209-85-128-0-1

    So it seems to be indeed a legitimate Google service. For now I have white-listed this IP range but would you please look into this?

    Got an answer from the plugin author. Will post it here so he doesn’t need to respond all over the place:

    Ovidiu, this block is due to your subscription to Project Honey Pot.

    The root cause is that spammers are using Google App Engine to deliver spam, and so legitimate services which also use Google App Engine are affected.

    To which I answered:

    Ah, I understand. I was just worried because this request looked like a perfectly legitimate request.
