MT-Blacklist Updater is back up and works, this time. I’m still in need of testers so do try it out and let me know of any bugs you may find. Thanks!
Comments, suggestions, bug reports are highly appreciated.
I used to use a very simple PHP script which simply grabs the latest master blacklist and overwrites the local copy on my server. I didn’t think too much of having any entries I’d made myself being overwritten then. Now I do, after I received quite some spam that wasn’t caught by MT-Blacklist, and decided to rewrite it so that it uses the blacklist changes RSS feed to update my local blacklist non-destructively.
The results of a few hours work (mostly spent writing documentation!): MT-Blacklist Updater.
