Page comments Hi Steven, I'm glad it's of some interest. You are right about there being no obvious hook into Start_Request so it's either change the Global, create a http module or try something with Action Filters? As an aside to this, I've been looking at the Honey Pot option and I'm thinking of adding some 'smart' checking of form data and also some means by which common spam insertions ('bots, payed human zombies) can be checked for and added to the banned IP list immediately. I'm still thinking about the best approach, but it's tricky without mangling base nop code. Wed, 11 Dec 2013 15:47:01 +0000 Ed Great post! Thanks - I'm interested in this as a plugin but am unsure how possible it is from a plugin, not sure what nop offers in terms of allowing a plugin to bind to the beginning of incoming requests.
