Announcing the Comment Block List

I’m tired of spam – as I’m sure many of you are as well… Getting hit daily in my inbox(es) and here on my blog(s), via fax or phone. It really gets tiring after a while, so I have decided to start my own personal – blog comment spam block list – The Comment Block List (EKCBL). This list may be a small list now – but it is growing steady.

How will you build the list?
This will be a list of IP addresses that have left comment spam on one of my blogs, currently there are five sites I’m aggregating this data from. I’m expecting to update the list on a weekly basis, but this might change if volume or time demand it. I’ll post updates on the EKCBL page as to the last update time and current number of records so you can compare against your personal lists.

Where can I get a copy of this list?
The list will be made available here in this text file (new window) here.

Can I contribute to the list?
At this time we are not taking submissions to the list, if this changes we will post an announcement and instructions for submitting data.

Anything else I should know?
Please read the conditions of use before implementing this list. By using this list you accept the terms as written (or updated in the future)
