Thanks Alexander for your words of wisdom. ;) My buddies ban script is 
even secured.. PHP code wise.. so I can't even have the SAME version on 
spencerp.net... running on VB.com. They're both secured / enabled for 
each domain separately... with database access / site url access only. 
When viewing the files, ya can't even read it.

This script is not on the market... this script wasn't shared.. period. 
This script is basically a pre-ban of ips, uas, ua keywords etc.. to 
three IP levels of bannage...  is what I was using.. FRESH. It hasn't 
been used in lengthy time frame either.. and yet spam was coming 
through... But I caught and banned NEWER IPS that were spamming my blogs 

Well, I did find another list of spammer ips online some where... and 
added them as well as the ones that were coming in later. I wish there 
was a way... to drop off spam / proxy IPS to a site.. everyone's site 
checks through em all, before allowing comment to appear. Only thing is, 
the load times would be heavy. I just wish there was a way...
