Access Blocker (a pseudo-recaptcha)

Description
This drop-in plugin provides your store with admin-level controls to block (or limit) actions provided by the contact_us, create_account and login pages. If access is blocked via admin-level configuration:

1. contact_us. The message appears to be sent, but no email is actually generated.
2. create_account. An account appears to have been created, but it's not (and no emails are sent). The message (defined in the plugin's message-file) is displayed to give the illusion of an account having been created.
3. login. The login is denied, with the "standard" Error: Sorry, there is no match for that email address and/or password. message being displayed.

Some features of the plugin require that you request a free API key from the ipdata.co (https://ipdata.co) service. That service identifies "known" threats, based on a supplied IP address Access Blocker makes that request based on the IP address used to access your site.
