New feature live - TOR node support
I've just added a new feature to the API, at the request of the TOR hosting community. This option is *off* by default.
if you add
to any API call, then any listed IP numbers that are known "good" exit nodes (updated hourly) will not be reported as a spamming IP. Is is for sites that wish to use StopForumSpam but wish to allow Tor access. While spammers persist in using Tor, I think its one of the most powerful and useful tools that we have to resist Government monitoring.
Bridge nodes, private nodes and "bad" nodes (those that alter http/https traffic etc) will continue to be reported as a spamming IP, if listed and notorexit is used.
If any serial (non-default) format is specified and the exit node is a Tor exit node, then the IP record will include a "torexit" key, with a value of 1
will provide this output ( note: 18.104.22.168 is a listed tor exit node and this is correct at the time of this post)
however, without this parameter, the output of
will produce this response
