Blocking IPs [...]:, and they're so easy to fake only the technically dull bad people will be affected.

Wow. It is easy for you to fake an IP and have the results sent back to you? You'll have to explain that before I believe you.

If you are using IP for security, then the only risk from faking IPs is that someone can send you data with a forged IP in hopes of getting you to act on it. Simply requiring a minimal dialogue that includes repeating hard-to-predict data is enough to make such extremely unlikely.

An attacker having control over a block of IP adresses is a separate issue.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
