Post New firewall rules
I had a site hacked, and that kinda ticked me off. It was easy to fix, but hey, I'm a little guy... go pick on somebody else.

I'm trying a new script which blocks all traffic from IP ranges in China. I don't have any web sites in Chinese, and as much as I like just about everywhere in the world, I'm curious to know if this will help with some of the forum spam.

There's a possibility it may slow down traffic, and I haven't used a firewall with this many rules, so let me know if things seem slower. So far so good, but if we get a dozen people on TS3 and it starts getting choppy, I may knock the rules off and see if that is the problem.

Thank you again for your kind patience and understanding.

Awesome. Tired of seeing 10 bots logged in at various parts of the day, and the new member bot count still rising. Hope this does it.
