Re: Hot Spam - 43.5 Million Listed Spammers Etc
Well to begin with.. I don't think ALL of those are truly bad guys, some of them are just a bit paranoid and just for that reason hide their real IP.
I still do manual checks on my own portals (the IP Spy tool in the portal) using a website to deliver an IP analising popup, if needed I look deeper using google on the extra stuff you mention.
The base of the tool I use is at http://wellho.net/,
I even think they show more code than I used as an example somewhere (so you could do your own lookups).. I was just lazy and let them do the lookups
..gave them a nice credit link though.
The best for defeating spammers IMHO
is kill them fast, as long as it takes to make them finally realise it's pointless... if they are human, they will
If I can, I try to ban while
they are posting... must hurt some times because I sometimes even follow the banned IP in Whois Online list (I even saw one that was searching for his lost spam message and trying to tog back in again constantly
