Blocking of networks…

View the fact that I have had to block so many specific IP addresses during the last few months, I have now switched tactics and I am now blocking entire networks based on the IP addresses.  For example: if an IP address such as (Moscow, Russia) attempts to compromise my website, I now unilaterally block the entire network that it originated from ( –, aka  I am also actively blocking sites which enable those who wish to hide their malicious activities.  From the recent blocked attempts I’ve seen from additional IP addresses originating from networks I’ve blocked, it appears that this strategy is working.

This may affect some non-malicious users, but until the hosting networks deal with their problem users, this method will be used.  If you cannot access this website because of this measure, then I suggest you take it up with whoever controls your network.

Sorry, not sorry.
