tor-exit-node.7by7.de spammed me today, so I decided to track them down. There is not much on him, but he is a tor exit server.
It is too bad that tor exit servers are used for spamming, as many sites will ban them. Banning due to spamming really defeats the purpose of tor. The best intentions result in misuse.

mbahrain.mbahrain.net is using the Zend_Http_Client user agent, so they get banned. They are small, only 2 IPs.
mbahrain.mbahrain.net 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206 – 220.127.116.11 18.104.22.168/17 UNIFIEDLAYER

hn.kd.dhcp is spamming my site, so I need to remove it. This guy has been around for quote a while and has a long list of IPs, but not so long a list of IP ranges. This spammer runs out of Henan Province, China, but has used Jilin, Chongqing, Guangdong, and Shanghai
These may be related: hn.kd.ny.adsl; hn.ly.kd.adsl; hn.kd.dhcp
22.214.171.124 hn.kd.dhcp 2017-jan-04
126.96.36.199 hn.kd.dhcp 2016-oct-06
188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206 – 220.127.116.11 18.104.22.168/15 China Unicom Henan
This guy hn.kd.ny.adsl seems innocent enough, until I tried to look him up, only to find no positive IP address. Others have posted that they, too, cannot find his IP address in order to ban him. Hmmm, let me track him down.
This hacker is prolific in that he rarely repeats the third octet, making it harder to ban by a narrower range. You’ll need to go up to the second octet to cover his IP ranges. He uses predominantly China Unicom Henan. Only once did he go to China Unicon Fujian, which might just be an outlier data point.
midex.zomro.com scrapes my site for awstat tags. I do not know why, and they do it multiple times. It is very annoying.
There is a ransomware listing for crasher121.zomro.com 22.214.171.124. There are other comments such as “126.96.36.199 is involved in malware incidents, spamming activity, ssh attacks, ddos” so caution is required. I did not research zomro.net, as I do not know if the .com and .net sites are related.

Riding a motorcycle is hazardous to your health if you are not very careful and conservative. As a rider this is unsurprising. Yesterday here in Scarborough/Toronto, Ontario, Canada I made a riding error that involved a bus. Luckily for me I did not crash, there was no traffic behind me, and very little traffic around me. Still, I give pause to analyze my actions, improve my riding and ultimately to ride another day.
Disbelief is what I felt when I first saw two pedestrian texters walk straight into each other, head to head. So engrossed with their lives that they could not spend the time to watch where they are going? As a technologist I am always interested in the social effects of technology on society. Distracted walking shows that the vast majority of people cannot do two things at the same time, that multi-tasking is really not feasible for most people, and that this behaviour can be potentially dangerous to the person and those around them.
