This page contains a list of IP/addresses that have exhibited 'bad behavior' at some point (spamming, sucking bandwidth, exploits, hacking, etc...).

141.44.198.187 wh59-807.st.Uni-Magdeburg.DE

DaveH 12:00, 10 April 2006 (EDT) – Banned via iptables for using half the sites bandwidth over an extended period. Looks like they were downloading every single page/link on the Wiki in consecutive order. Not a terribly big deal but I was trying to track down performance issues at the time so decided to ban them temporarily. Will remove in a few days.

Daveh 21:03, 4 March 2007 (EST) - Sudden site unavailability traced to large increase of connections from this address. Blocked at the server level with iptables.
