Blacklist comments from open and insecure proxies not working any more

  • Hi,

    I found out that “Blacklist comments from open and insecure proxies.” would do a RBL test at opm.blitzed.org (at least in WP 2.0.3).
    However, this RBL has ceased to exist: http://lists.blitzed.org/pipermail/opm-announce/2006q2.txt

    I suggest changing it to (for instance) sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org

    For those who want to do that themselves (on 2.0.3):
    – edit wp-includes/functions-post.php
    – find this line:
    $lookup = $rev_ip . ‘.opm.blitzed.org.’;
    – change to this:
    $lookup = $rev_ip . ‘.sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org.’;
    – save and exit

  • Thanks for the info! I just noticed the death of blitzed.org’s list, and it does look like spamhaus will do nicely as a replacement.
