The newest version (0.5) of my WordPress Plugin “Block Top Spammers” now updates the .htaccess file automatically (if it is writable). The other major change is improved support for IPv6.

Hi, I want to translate your plugin into belorussian language. Please tell me Your email, simply answer me.
I love the plugin. I have only just installed it and already I have 3 IPs addresses in the deny list for the wp-comments-post file. I guess you already know, but the URL referenced in the 404 page on your blog comes up as “under construction”. I guess there is not a lot you can say to someone who is the source of spam, unless you can recommend a good spam-bot solution for the ones who are innocent victims.
There seems to be something wrong with your plugin… I am a WordPress developer and Systems Administrator. I have a client with a pretty large community (about 5000 uniques a day). They have to deal with tons of SPAM; 200-400 messages a day.
One of their administrators of their site installed the Top Spammers plugin and once or twice a day it was causing Apache/PHP to OOM and bring down their server. I think it has something to do with the way you block access to the wp-comment-post.php file and how PHP reacts. Contact me and I can send you the error logs and more information.
I haven’t had time to really go through the plugin, so I am not sure what might else be causing the issue.
P.S. They are on WordPress 3.0 and PHP 5.3
