Russian Forum Ban

180px-No-spam.svg We get tons of spam on these forums and most of it comes from Russian IP addresses. I was looking at out logs today and nearly half of the traffic to these forums is spammers trying to get in and almost all of them are from Russia.

To stop this misuse of the forums, I have put a full ban on all IP addresses originating from the Russian Federation. People from Russia can still view the rest of the site, but they will get an access denied if they attempt to view the forums.

I don’t like doing this as it may cause a few real users problems, but it had to be done.
