Consistent, stable performance
By , for WP 4.2.3

I've been using http:BL for years and even though it appears to have been without maintenance, it hasn't needed any. It does what it's supposed to do, with a wide degree of control provided to the Op. I run mine at a pretty sensitive level, blocking IPs that Project HoneyPot finds somewhat suspicious.

Not that I recommend this but I have operated without Akismet and http:BL has blocked every comment spammer that tried to visit the site, with the added bonus of pushing them into my own active honey pot thus allowing the Project to better profile the bad actors.

If I understood today's "update" it seems there is a new maintainer, so I thought I would make a welcome out of a review.

Excellent integration with http:BL
