New Host Provider, No IP Bans for 21 hrs

Moved, I did, from Site5, to A2. The last 21 hrs was a wet and wild ride all without the protection of my trusty .htaccess file, the one with my Ip ban list. Within that time, 21 hrs, I received a total of 33 spam comments. Usually I receive only one or two. It is clear that without protection I would be inundated by comment spam.

Of course these IPs are only the ones that comment spammed me. There are many more that use their bots to do content scraping, trying to break into my site, trick my host provider, etc. There are too many to list.

I had already previously banned these ip ranges:
Colocrossing p c p c p c p c p c

B2Net Solutions p c p c p c b2net p c p c p c p c p c p c


The only new IP that had not already been banned, that I would have received comment spam, was from Chinanet Jiangsu. I have already banned it.
CN jiangsu p c

If it is already not clear, banning ranges of specific bad internet service hosts makes a lot of sense. These, and others do not go away, are always trying to find a hole in your armour, and are ready every day to spam your web site. Give them no satisfaction and ban their complete IP ranges, or they will show you no mercy.
