Default IP Banning Galore

On the off chance that you're a legitimate Digital Media Thoughts reader trying to post and you're getting an IP banned warning, it likely means you're from one of the locations I've banned. If you're a regular reader here, you've not doubt seen spammers blasting away in our forums posting their junk ads for cell phones and PS3s. I've been getting more aggressive in dealing with them lately, banning entire IP address blocks - basically, most of these spammers are using Internet cafes located in eastern Europe and Africa. To stop them, I'm blocking the entire IP address range assigned to the locations they're posting from. I haven't heard any complaints from anyone so far, but I thought I'd let you know what's up. ;-)
