IP Banning (Read 740 times)

How many IP addresses can I list without causing problems in the forum?
Thanks to implentating
easy to edit modifications
that are outlined in this post
, I've evidently been able to stop all spam bots from registering. I previously kept those spammers out by requiring admin approval, which of course took up bits of time throughout the day. Thankfully, I no longer need to do this.
I currently have 2,060 IP addresses that have been banned; almost all because of spammers getting past the captcha settings.
Thankfully, I no longer need to constantly add IP addresses to the previously growing IP banning list. My thinking is that I'll par down that list to include only those that I need.
I should add that with 2,060 banned IP addresses in this list, our forum still operates quite fast, but I thought it might be better if I don't add to the size of whichever
file that gets bigger because of this list.
Your thoughts? Suggestions?
