PPLOG blacklisting

April 22, 2010 — BarryK
I would like to thank forum member 'prit', who has modified the PPLOG Perl script with blacklisting based on ipaddress. These days, ipaddress is not a perfect method for blacklisting, but it is a step in the right direction.

The PPLOG script did have blacklisting by ipaddress, however it required hard-coding the ipaddresses into the script. Prit has added a button and a separate file to hold the blacklisted ipaddresses.

This latest PPLOG script is now running on my blog (what you are looking at now).

Note that PPLOG is a very small single Perl script, that prit liked very much and rewrote in PHP, calling it Pritlog. He has added more features, and you can find out about Pritlog here:

Also (note, prit has moved from flat files to Sqlite):

Barry, Thanks for using the mod. The blacklisting is based on IP address and user name. When blacklisted, any user from the same IP cannot post comments. Also, the same user from a different IP cannot post comments. "22 Apr 2010, 21:59"01527"'
