This plugin checks if a user of your web application is listed in DNSBLs (DNS Blackhole Lists). These are lists of misbehaving IP addresses. There are many DNSBLs, some are more aggressive than others. More information at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNSBL This filter will result in one DNS request for every blocklist that you have configured. This might be problematic for sites under heavy load, although this plugin has been used on high-traffic sites without any problem. One DNS request takes a few miliseconds to complete, after all. INSTALLATION 1. execute "script/plugin install git://github.com/tilsammans/dnsbl_check.git 2. add "before_filter :dnsbl_check" to controllers that need checking 3. restart your application.
