Greetings, Brethren and Sistren:

As a rabid anti-spam zealot, I've developed a module to perform (DNS) queries of the Project Honey Pot http:BL for blog/contact form protection. I intend to upload the beastie to CPAN so that others might join in the epic battle against one of the great evils of the internets today. I believe that the best place for it might be in the Net namespace (Net::HttpBL seems appropriate) but 'tis not for me alone to decide.

DNS queries are easy enough to perform but I believe that making http:BL queries falling-off-of-a-log simple may serve to increase the http:BL user base, and so benefit all who use it. Myself included :)

So, what say you, my esteemed peers?

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

      Neither queries the Project Honeypot http:BL, supports the required access key component of the query, or decodes the meanings of the http:BL responses.

      Thanks for the response just the same.

        But they give you naming ideas :)

    did you upload it?
      Not yet. I was in the process of tidying the thing up for general usage when the Project Honey Pot web site went catatonic and there was talk of altering the meaning of threat scores so I was reluctant to release something that might soon become worthless.

      My todo list includes finishing the cleanup and uploading, but it's a bit low on the priorities list.

    The name you've chosen seems appropriate. What do you mean by falling-off-of-a-log?
