Is it possible to prevent users from specific IP addresses from posting comments?

Thanks

There's nothing built into BlogEngine to handle this request but an extension could be made pretty quickly...  I previously wrote GateKeeper, an extension that blocks IP addresses, but it's not specific to comments, rather it prevents total access to the site.  It would be trivial to combine the Commentor Blacklist extension with GateKeeper to accomplish blocking the IP Address for comments.  If you need help with this just let me know...

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone had put this together as an extension? I am interested in the same functionality. Recently I have been getting a lot of comment spam which all comes from the same IP address, but uses different email addresses.

Thanks!
