IP banning resulting in members getting a banned notice

Postby cobb on Sun Jul 23, 2017 7:02 pm

This site has been getting hit by spammers daily, it has slowed down to just 1 or 2 a day lately. If a person is using a service that uses a foreign proxy from counties like China, Russia, etc., or a browser that provides anonymous browsing through a foreign county IP's, this may result in a notice that your IP has been banned. It is not the user name that is banned, a person can still log in, just not through those banned IP address.

Nobody has been banned by name for months.

There is also an email server ending in dot top which the spammers use. There were upwards of 6 per day. So when they are IDed the entire IP range gets banned. Even getting them from IP's in France, UK and the Bahamas.

Notice we haven't been getting spammed since we started screening then approving new members

At least they didn't give you 127 hours, you'd have had to amputate an appendage.
