Description: An option to keep comment spammers from ever registering (should this be a second issue?) - is ProjectHoneyPot.org has a DNS lookup see: http://projecthoneypot.org/httpbl_api.php

If it could be put in, to keep known comment spammers from ever seeing a registration form.

Probably set to be optional by forum admins, if they enter a key (required by project honey pot's lookup) on the forum's config page.

Has anything been done to block comment spammers? I have inherited a site that implements Galleon and comment spamming is a big problem. I don't know the Galleon programming yet, and I haven't found any other suggestions about how to handle spammers.

Galleon has CFFP built in now (CF Form Protect). You can also remove Write access for the GalleonUsers group. You will need to manually approve new users though.
