Over the last month or so, we’ve seen an increase in references to the ATO scam and the Microsoft scam, not to mention the amount of spam emails we’ve been receiving from Chinese spammers has skyrocketed.
We’ve been blocking IP’s from the Philippines, India, Pakistan and China since the beginning, as soon as we’ve noticed any significant amount of requests coming our way. To date, we’ve not received a single email from any of these countries requesting access to the site again, or apologizing for their excessive requests.
To deal with this matter, we’ve made one very significant change to Reverse Australia, and that is to no longer accept traffic from any of the above mentioned countries. We hope this will decrease the chance of our service being misused, and allow us to serve as a great Australian resource, with far less hassle.
Update March 28: Bangladesh is now banned as well.
