@pj I can't say about ad revenue as I don't run any site with ads.
In terms of request, you just do one request per day and fetch the free 10k IPs at once. Then you need to have to install https://ipset.netfilter.org/ and configure it to use that list. IPset runs in memory, so it's pretty fast and the extra memory it uses on the server that I am testing, is nothing compared to the extra memory that was being wasted 'answering' spam/attack requests.
@selea I have been using them manually over the years to validate blocks from my firewall but never used their block list or made any reports. But now I am thinking that maybe I should :)
Been testing IPset with the 10k IPs block list from the free tier of https://www.abuseipdb.com/ and it reduced the load on a LAMP server by close to 50%. Pretty amazing if these results are validated over time.
@jonwexler sounds good. I am testing Stripe payments with some people to offer it as an alternative payment method. If that helps, send me an email and I can tell how you can subscribe via Stripe.
@jonwexler Hello Jon, sounds good. I will be around :) Anything I can help with feel free to reach out.
@fosstodon @martijnbraam You can have a look here for a general view of the infrastructure https://masto.host/infrastructure/ and I can share some numbers about the resources used by Fosstodon (if the admins allow obviously) but it's hard to give you an actual hardware usage (besides disk space) as resources are shared.
@sungo I have looked a couple of times to Pobox but assumed that since they were now part of Fastmail and the services look so similar that I didn't dedicate much time looking into it.
I will look a bit more into it to see if I understand the difference between the services.
