Make your site anti-bot?
I have a custom web form on my PHP-based site.
Recently it is getting a regular stream of comment-spam postings from a few specific IP addresses.
Question: What is a good way to block a small set of blacklisted IP addresses from accessing my site?
I was thinking it should be possible using .htaccess to respond with status code 403 (Forbidden) for all HTTP requests from the blacklisted IP addresses, ... but I am not sure exactly how to do that.
If anyone knows the .htaccess syntax needed to accomplish this, ... please let me know.
thanks in advance,
