I banned a gazillion IP's from Russia and China yesterday. In fact, I banned the entire countries. I noticed that the new website was attached by spammers from these countries nearly every hour of the day (a few succeeded in getting through). I don't like banning entire countries. But sometimes, it's the only way to stop major attacks. As I do, I will let you know by updating the list below...

BANNED COUNTRIES:
Armenia ... banned 2 February 2011
Belarus ... banned 2 February 2011
China ... banned 1 February 2011
Croation ... banned 2 February 2011
Czech Republic ... banned 2 February 2011
Georgia ... banned 2 February 2011
Latvia ... banned 2 February 2011
Lithuania ... banned 2 February 2011
Romania ... banned 2 February 2011
Russia Federation ... banned 1 February 2011
Ukraine ... banned 2 February 2011

This is really sad. I have kinfolks in Croatia. I don't know them personally, but I know they're there. I do understand!

Thanks for letting us know Richard.

Teri: You are right. It is very sad. I am deleting probably 10 spammers a day from the former soviet bloc countries who are trying to create accounts for the purpose of ... well, you know what these idiots do.

In the meantime, if you want your family members to see the website, I can "unban" their IP. We can direct them to a website where they can write their IP down on a piece of paper and then if they email their specific IP, I can make sure it is always allowed.

Thanks for responding Richard, but I don't even KNOW my relatives over there. I just know that they're there. I remember meeting an Aunt that came to visit when I was about 25 or so, but I don't even remember her name. Thanks again!

I recently "unbanned" all countries because of the fact that the website security system is tougher for spam-bots to use AND most importantly, because the only way to get an account is to email me directly and ask me personally to do so.

Seems that it is working well, after about six months of doing it this way. I am getting people who are emailing me for accounts and the spam has gone away. For this reason, I feel safe in lifting the country-wide bans.
