I must confess I haven't tested it in detail. However, it's not a genuine coppermine plugin, as it requires editing of a config file. It would be much more elegant to store the plugin's config strings inside the database. That's what I'm currently working on on my local testbed, as the idea of coppermine plugins is that end users don't have to worry about editing files at all. I'll post my edits of the httpbl plugin version asap.
The hard thing about testing this plugin is that you don't get any feedback how successfull the plugin was (i.e. how many spam scripts, email harvesters, bad search engine spiders etc. have actually followed the way to the honey pot). This would be something that really is important for site owners: the plugin itself should provide a basic honeypot target and a corresponding counter, as you can hardly expect end users who rely on pre-made plugins to come up with custom scripts that will do they counting and stats for them.

Hello I have recently installed these in my gallery, but I was wondering about Whitelisting as I could not find anything about it on the code. I got a email from a user of the gallery saying that they could no longer access the gallery because this was blocking them. They are a regular user of the site in general after I asked them few questions they said that they recently got a new IP and that when they started getting the problem. After reading about this on the net it said that this person might have gotten a IP that was used by a spammer in the past. I would like to know if there a way to whitelist this person IP so they can go back to using the gallery again. Thanks for any help

purplefreak3, you should post a link to your gallery when asking for help - always

But since you have the problem that I would be concerned with, which is:
"What happens to good users when their ip goes bad?" Will all of them make contact by
email? Can they make contact at all? Will they just turn away?

You have to look deeper than the links above for your answer. Here is
a quote from a Wordpress support page  (link here)

To do so, edit the bad-behavior/whitelist.inc.php file, and insert the exact user agent or IP address range desired.
Good Luck
