[geeklog-devel] Spam-X IP Blacklist

I believe that would be the Stop Forum Spam module. It is enabled on
Geeklog.net. It checks new registration email addresses against the stop
forum spam database. If there is a match (there is a confidence threshold)
it is recorded (along with the IP address) by SPAM-X so we don't keep
spamming the SFS database with requests if it is a bot spamming us.

The Ban plugin has something similar though it checks every visit and not
just a new user registration. Banned IPs also have a TTL option so they can
be setup to eventually expire.

Subject: [geeklog-devel] Spam-X IP Blacklist

Can someone explain to me how the Spam-X IP Blacklist module is currently
working (or supposed to work)?

Looking at the list of IP addresses, I see a lot of entries that I didn't
make. For example, there's an entry for with a counter of 0,
last updated 2016-02-05 08:30:01

How did this (and a few other addresses from the same - address range) end up in the list? And why is the counter 0?
