I just wanted to give a thumbs up on this service.
It has reduced the amount of comment spam to near zero and provides an easy way to add repeat offenders in to blacklist. Also, since we are a local business in the United States the constant crawling by foreign spiders and many in the United States was much more readily addressed - some directly by abyss, the foreign countries simply by adding the countries to the blacklist. This was all done manually in the .htaccess file previously and was man-hour intensive (I have 4 sites to manage).
In the past more than 2x the traffic on these sites came from these spiders, bots, etc. That for instance, has also made management of analytics (like Google and Bing) much easier and the numbers are much better with respect to ROI, etc.
Bottom line, this is a great service.
