( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I ran an ISP as the senior global network engineer for a decade, and I am against blocking based on IP block or in most cases address level. I've always believed that any risk of collateral damage is too much risk.

IPs can be spoofed (although that's admittedly become much harder in today's age), people forget to remove the restriction, admins can mistype the prefix and wipe out an address space way larger than they intended (yep, I've done that one... blocked most of Australia once by blackholing way too large a block, and took me a while to sort out WTF because the problem didn't crop up for a few days after the change).

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
