Ah yes, thanks for that tip!

How about denying them to post links below minimum post count?

I didn't pay too much attention to IP origins, but there were some from romania.

Your list is quite long, is that all of latvia, or just known spam sites?

Also, are there reasonable sources for lists of IPs of known spam sites worldwide? I'm new at this.

thanks

Allow me to apologize in advance if this is not quite the right time or place to post this, but i sincerely believe it is. If it isn't, please be so kind as to gently point me in the right direction. Thank you.
