This plugin might work. http://mods.mybb.com/view/no-proxy-please

You will need to update it for 1.8. See: http://community.mybb.com/thread-75646.html

You can't add a functionality without additional code.. A plugin like this shouldn't make any difference even on terrible servers.

It tries to connect to the request's ip twice every... request, how is that not terrible for the server?
This is some horrible advice and to even try to back it up... Wow good job.

OP as that's mine, it's a whole system scanning every ip and stacking them into lists if suspicious for later scanning; and it's not a plugin it uses nginx's deny as that's more lightweight than anything.

No it's my own private system and I only share the block files sometimes.

Or that's your terrible reading comprehension, because I clearly wrote "A plugin like this" (generally) and I assume you're specifically talking about the 1.6 plugin posted above. You don't need to connect to a remote server if you only require basic headers check, you know. If that's not sufficient and you need better detection, there are also other lighter methods such as blacklist dbs.

Not to mention that he was worried about the amount of plugins used on his forum and I answered accordingly to that, since using 1-3 hook(s) more rather than executing code directly doesn't really matter.

Also, bragging about your private system is definitely more helpful. "Wow good job."

Calm down there buddy no need to get all angry up in here, OP will clearly take the easiest path and use what is thrown at him and the plugin that was thrown at him is horribly expensive to use in which you confirmed that a plugin like such wouldn't make much of a difference; notice his reply to yours, yea good job there.

Problem there is that the code that is executed is quite horrible and without caching and what was said above.

Not bragging but sorry if you feel that way, just pointing it out as many tend to search for it and details on how it works, if you haven't noticed there has been quite many threads about it.
