I'm working on a blog site that's meant to be a general online presence, it'll include a 3D model gallery and potentially have programs/source code/any code I write that I feel like sharing. I've watched other blogs get spammed and trolled and I've personally been on the butt end of trolling. It's really obnoxious. I want to stop it.
I'm also going to block proxies as another deterrent. (I.E. checking HTTP headers and a quick portscan via this tutorial
, I'm worried the portscan may load my web server down. (What I'd LOVE to do is have a cookie set that the port scan checks for before running. No cookie means one gets scanned, but I'm not a full fledged programmer yet.) I'm also looking at this script to just block HTTP headers on wordpress but I'll likely have secondary CMSes.
