Note that these entries are probably useless against spammers that keep changing their IP number. That’s what the next section is about: banning whole ranges.
Whois can tell you whether you should bother banning just one IP, or an entire range. I use http://network-tools.com/ when working on a system that does not provide whois.
So when you notice spammers, first look up their whois info. Find the part showing the range and name of the company, then ban the entire range. Document it here on this page and add a timestamp. We will remove the bans after a few days, hoping that the spammers moved on.
