Many Cambodian IP addresses are listed on various blacklists. This was previously often preventing access to this blog. This is a result of Microsoft’s sub-standard products and policies which enable criminals to use their Windows operating system to conduct malicious activities.
I was previously using Project Honey Pot’s http:BL in conjunction with Bad Behaviour WordPress plugin to control access to this blog. My intention was to restrict access from malicious spammers and content scrapers.
