  • I recently installed this plugin called Check IP Behind Proxy :

    But truth be told I have no idea how it works… do I have to do something to check IPs behind a spammers/abuser’s proxy… really if someone is using it and knows how and what it does and how I should be using it… would be of great help… the website doesn’t mention much.

  • here’s what you are not being explained.

    If you read the plugin authors site it says this:

    “several transparent proxies that hide the real IP address of most comments.”

    he explains this also, but I’ll reinforce it:

    1. One can still get the originating IP if a user is behind a transparent proxy.

    Because of 1., spammers do NOT use them. They use anonymous

    That plugin is not going to do much in the way of telling you anything about spammers.

    Oh thanks whooami… so in case of transparent proxies where does this plugin show the real ips in the comments page of admin?

    I’m trying to use this more for the comment abusers and trash talkers on my blog who keep using proxies once I block one of their IPs
