Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So then you can't say if it was senegal or not, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm sure they could easily link IP address to particular regions...

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Trouble with blocking entire IPs is that perhaps the IP is shared by other folks in the region; IP blacklisting is often a lastresort type of thing.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, the IP is from Senegal. IP Addresses are assigned to organizations in blocks. Both originated from the same regional ISP in Senegal. I doubt it was a proxy.
