Ghana - you're out

Posted on:July 31 2009

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. :)

Yup banning only the troublesome countries seems sufficient, banning everyone for crimes of Nigeria is a bit too much.

Guys, I think that banning everybody except Germany, Austria and Switzerland was actually a joke.
