    70.162.85.46
    70.132.133.30
    83.19.66.122
    66.176.187.129
    69.232.186.155
    69.109.160.202
    213.164.102.68
    209.112.221.17
    59.93.56.73

    192.153.163.63
    205.250.8.172

    Hey!
    What's the purpose for banning these IPs?

    i may also add those:
    217.160.171
    65.35.112.144
    24.16.124.143
    61.3.200.32
    210.211.255.19

    ps. samchung, usually banning is the fastest thing to do when one day you wake up and see 400 new blogs created overnite which is nothing but bots created blogs. uhmm btw, now that I am thinking about it, isn't there a way to use image verification with wpmu registration?

    Yeah, image registration would be perfect! :)

    Okay, on the topic of image verification, I have looked into this before. It would be very easy to implement, but you'd have to end up modifying the newblog.php file everytime you update MU. The reason being that the action hook for newblog.php comes after the submit button. You'd have to manually move it up. Other then that a simple MU plugin can be made. If people don't mind this, i'll try throwing something together soon.

    Thanks fimion! It would be a great plugin nonetheless.

    Here's mine. Any line missing the last group is a Class c that's hit me more than a couple of times from different IPs within that block.

    Note: I like keeping mine in order so I can find them quickly. Other may want to follow up on that idea. :)

    I couldn't use it as I have too many clients who have vision issues.

    And how woudl it stop manually created spam blogs? We've had exactly one but would like to prevent any we could.

    They created a blog, waited a few days, then posted a half a dozen posts within a short time. I monitor the site all the time, and caught it right away.

    Andrea, most splogs are created by scripts. If they had to read a series of characters within a graphic image, they would hopefully be stopped.

    What about an activation triggered system? On my system I'd like to acknowledge all new blogs before they become active. Maybe this could be a multi-pass step.

    1. image verification -> email to use
    2. email verification -> create request to admin
    3. site admin activates blog

    Gwagen, easiest method would be to use the invite method. Have new users email you requesting them and then you send them the invite. That way you approve the signup as well as verify the email address.
