Banman is a complete, stand-alone, automatic IP moderation system.

Written in PHP, Banman is dedicated to sharing an easily-customizable way to add a self-protecting site content mechanism to any web site.

Banman's single-file template support (template21) also offers a way to either easily jump-start a new "safe site", or to quickly add content protection to an existing site.

Banman protection comes in two forms: temp-ban and perm-ban.

A temp-ban TEMPORARILY bans a user from any more content views. Views must take place within a customizable grace period.

A perm-ban ever-bans an IP address by detecting any FURTHER violation within that same grace period.

The enforcement of both the 'temp-ban' and the 'forever-ban' are completely automated.

The ability to personally manage / view banishment activity is also included (banman.php.)

A web site in its own right, Banman also includes over 500 customizable, 'protectable' quotations (index_example.php).
