Blocked 20 countries fyi

Postby guru » Tue Apr 21, 2015 3:56 pm

Due to spam and generally unwanted traffic we have blocked many middle eastern and a few other countries, if you know anyone whom is blocked and needs access please have them email guru@gametoast.com and I'll assist in getting them access

Thanks hope all is well

I'm blocked too, I'm from Brazil... but don't you thinks this will not stop the spam? why to create a "smart" field mandatory in the register form? this is easy and simple, worked 100% in all my forums (I have 3)

Just create a field with any smat question, then a bot will not be able to answer... look what I did: http://bc.freeforums.org/ucp.php?mode=r ... 59de327b6b
check the last field (just about the confirmation code), with only that will avoid any bot registering at your forum.

blocking IPs will not end the spam, and will hurt a lot more good people than bad ones... don't you think?

thanks

There are hundreds of sites worth millions on this server so blocking countries with shady port scans saves us time on hack and Trojan and spam work. I will see about whitelisting your ips just PM me the IPv4

I've sent you a private message here some time ago, but didn't get a reply. Regardless, I want to report Bulgaria is also blocked, and I'm using a US proxy.

Was the same for Germany. Blocked, pm, no replay. But now I can access again.

@guru: I do not know if this would fix the spam and hack attacks, but isn't there a way to prompt users from blocked countries the login directly and let them in if they are registered users. 3 times wrong password direct block the IP.

The block affects all websites hosted on the server, not just Gametoast. That's why it's difficult to whitelist individual people's IP.

I have allowed all Russia Germany NL and GB access as of now if your still blocked it's likely your ip falls into a "ban by country code" and due to our hosting policy enough bad traffic comes to warrant keeping a block

Well, is there a fix for individuals in Bulgaria, or will I have to login from a proxy?

I thought it was only me. The only way to write here now is to use a proxy.
