Description Author  

This class can be used to check spamming and other malicious and undesirable visitors' IP addresses in Project Honey Pot RBL (Realtime Black List).

It can perform a query to the Project Honey Pot RBL DNS server for a given IP address using your RBL API key.

The class analyzes the RBL response and sets a session variable if the current user IP address is of a spammer that should be blocked.

The blocked and allowed addresses are logged to a file or to tables of a mysql database.
