GoAway is a dirt-simple, light-weight "Ban By IP" module. It works by redirecting offending anonymous users to a local page or remote URL specified by the admin.

The module possesses the following features:

  • Separate permissions for (1) settings, (2) banning, and (3) unbanning
  • Either a local page or a remote URL may be used as the redirect destination
  • Adds display of IP address to anonymous comments for easy tracking (only displayed to users with 'ban' permission)

GoAway fills a void in Drupal 6, especially for high-traffic sites which can't (or don't want to) bear the combined load of the Statistics and Tracker modules. The entire purpose of GoAway is to make IP banning as easy as flagging a comment.

#D7CX: I pledge that GoAway will have a full Drupal 7 release on the day that Drupal 7 is released.
