    They tried to log on to my account too. If they're going after Mustang sites, at least the bastards have good taste in cars.

    Wouldn't you want to ban that IP address to prevent them from attempting further tries?

    I am still getting emails from attempted log ons, block that IP ;)
    No secret here....If someone really wants to see the site and/or attempt to log in they'll use a proxy or a computer in another location. IPs can also change and banning an entire subnet will result in false positives. For this reason, IP bans should only be used as a last resort. Banning is not as powerful of a tool as some may think or imply.

    If someone really wants to see the site, you won't be able to stop them.

    No I know they can proxy etc, but chances are if you ban this one IP that is trying repeatably, the issue would probably go away for now, esp. were it is a Russia IP, I don't think they will be making many SS events lol

    We on Foureyedpride have had to block foreign IP's before, been successful as well.

    I'm noticing that most of those posting are at the beginning of the member list alphabetically. Looks like maybe he's working his way through the list. Just a thought.

    I received a message from the site today at 3:57pm today stating that someone has tried to log into my account.
    It also said that the person had the following IP address: 188.143.235.81
