SSH hacked? DenyHosts VS Fail2ban

First, I want to point out that DenyHosts has a mode to share break-in info
and it is disabled by default. It also has a turned off email to the admin
that would be good for me, because  never look at logs; bet that is common
for most home users too. Not sure what needs to be loaded for the email to

So it looks like Fail2ban uses ipstables and Denyhosts does not. Not sure
what that is worth.

So anyone else ??

I am sure we are all able to keep this from a flame war.
