It feels strange to ban the ip adresses of a whole country, but this was the last resort to fight scammers on Bienen und Blumen
, our small (german speaking) dating website. People from Ghana seem to generally use a I-Am-A-Soldier-In-Iraq-And-Found-Sadams-Gold approach. So the whole country Ghana is now blocked at Bienen und Blumen, joining Cote D'Ivoire and Senegal. What a pity. However, who cares. Our users are usualy from Germany, Austria and Switzerland only.
If it goes on like this, I will be able to do a small performance optimization to this ip-ban in a few years: Only allow german, austrian and swiss ips. :)
