Many web sites allow the public to provide content, from simple guestbook applications through fora to wikis and beyond. However, the regulation (or moderation) of such content is a thankless task. The more technological solutions to the problem of "comment spam" the better.

mod_access_dnsbl provides a helping hand. It allows the webmaster to specify access controls in a similar fashion to mod_authz_host or mod_access, but rather than basing the decision on whether the client IP address matches a static pattern, instead this module checks it against an administrator-supplied list of DNSBL zones.

Requires: mod_dnsbl_lookup ≥ 0.91, Apache 2.x
