These are the 64 IP addresses that I current block on my websites. They include 50 that are responsible for more than 12,000 attempts at leaving bogus comments on my site just since I started blocking IP's that were leaving spam. I ran each through "dig -x" and have posted either the "answer" domain or the SOA domain. The latter aren't the owners, but they seem to run crappy networks. / (565 attempts since I started blocking) (581 attempts since I started blocking) (536 attempts since I started blocking) (965 attempts since I started blocking!) / (632 attempts since I started blocking)

The sad thing is, with this group of 64 now prevented from obtaining a response from my web server, another group will "rise to the top". All the while, I'm cutting random IP's off from my domains. The Internet is broken.
