Banned IP Blocks (UPDATED)

Well, today I simply got tired of wading through the crap posted by Russian guests — so I’ve blocked the entire country. While I was at it, I’ve also blocked Ukraine, Bulgaria, Romania, Latvia & Estonia.

Turkish universities, web hosts and Turk Telekom customers – scammers, spammers, phishing websites and server script exploiters have been blocked.

If this crap keeps up, the next to go will be China, Korea and all neighboring countries (Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam).

If you are from one of these countries (OK, not Russia as you can’t read this anyway) and are tired of seeing your list of websites that you can visit get smaller and smaller, then do something about it!

For those of you interested, here is what I have added to my blocklist;

You have to love it! My SPAM went from about 50 per day to 4. From what I’m seeing now, most of the SPAM is coming from US IPs.

One thought on “Banned IP Blocks (UPDATED)”

  1. I block all asia pacific and the former soviet states. Not only for mail but for everything. They are the wost offenders of everything bad on the internet so this just makes sense. These coutries have no policing or enforcemnt of laws when it comes to cyber-crime so do youself a favor and cut them off completely.

    Hi Chris;

    It really is sad that we have to do things like this… but, unfortunately, as you point out, without the laws in other countries, we really have no choice.

    Thanks for the info, please feel free to post your blocklist, if you wish!

    Regards;
    Kyle
