[Resolved] [Plugin: AVH First Defense Against Spam] Using spamhaus.org is an bad idea
Hallo from Germany, i’m not very used in wirting english.
Using spamhaus.org is a bad idea. It is a list made for email, not for http / blogs or whatever. Why?
spamhaus.org blocks wide IP-Range if they are known as ip adresses given from providers to “personal” internet-connections, often in combination with nat-routers.
For the email-system this is a good idea an works very well. It is blocking very effective spam caused by overtaken home computers from worms and viruses e.t.c.
Sending Email is not a Problem – users normaly use the smtp-server of ther providers or other email-adresses like gmail oder their own domains.
This is not the same with http traffic to wordpress-blogs e.t.c. – http goes directly from the users ips (okay – in rare cases through a proxy).
