You NEED this, if nothing else! NEED!

I'm the one that originally requested this sort of addition to Oxwall because it has been the #1 software thing that saved my server from lagging and crashing on another, non-Oxwall site I have. I sat on the Oxwall store here for days and snagged this about 15 minutes after it was available for purchase. Does that tell you my faith in this helping my site stay afloat? Haha. You NEED this. NEED! Sincerely, this is THE best plugin, and if you don't buy ANYTHING ELSE from the Oxwall store, you NEED to front the money for this one. NEED! In the first 36 hours over 1,000 bots, most scrapers, were receiving 503 errors when trying to access my site! 2,000 were caught in the first 48. GREAT STUFF! I can go down the list and see the ban reasons. Known scraper. Known scraper. Known scraper. Known to be malicious. Scraper. Scraper. Scraper. WOW! Sped my site up INCREDIBLY. No more random lag spikes going on when loading a page. It did not accidentally ban the Google bot! YAY! It has a really nice internal set-up where I can manually black list and white list IPs. I can also check out what IP was blocked, how many times it was warned about going to be blocked, and WHY it was blocked (SO important). It worked for me right away, no problems. I tweaked one setting in the files because I noticed that my mailbox add on ended with a trailing / and was setting off an ajax block. Even with the ajax block turned off, the functionality of this plugin is worth it's weight in gold. It's worth $100 for quick, seamless integration. $30 is a steal of a deal.
