    Is there a way to check a list of private proxies to find out if there are some already blocked by Akismet?
    Thanks.

    Really?


    What about Spam Free WordPress?
    Are there any method to test proxies for that?


    Thanks.

    Let me explain you this way...

    Usually, beside emails, is very difficult to block a IP regardless on spam activity's, because you may find in the situation when you will block an entire network and this is something that you do not want.

    Take a few days to learn about IP/servrer's and connection and you will understand what I'm talking about.

    But StopForumSpam is based on IP address, therefore I was thinking Akismet was doing the same...
    Also how can blocking a single IP can affect the entire network?

    There are many network out there that for security reason connect to the internet using only one IP.
