Description

http://www.openstreetmap.org generate a 403 error (forbidden) when I'm trying to connect it at home. Last time my IP was 88.147.205.228 (it is not a static IP). But it works perfectly when I use another ISP (e.x. at work)

That block is blocked because a lot of diary spam was originating from there. How widely does your IP vary?

comment:2 Changed 10 years ago by Genix

95.84.0.0/18

What kind of spam it was (email, comments, map commits, etc?) and when? As I know (don't sure) VolgaTelecom? got this IP pool recently. Do you have any info who can send a spam?

It was diary comments - a whole load of accounts were created over a period of time and used to post spam diary entries.

Replying to tom@compton.nu:

Guys, please unblock 95.84.0.0/18 -- it is impossible to work!

Um that block is completely different to the address you originally reported having a problem with... So which blocks exactly is it you need unblocking?

In fact 95.84.0.0/18 is not blocked! 88.147.196.0/17 is blocked which is the block containing the original address you mentioned?

As I know ISP own several network blocks. 88.147.196.0/17 is one of them. Right now I have a 88.147.225.32 address, and http://www.openstreetmap.org doesn't work for me ;(

These blocks have now been lifted. I have added (but not used as yet) the capability to block account creation from certain IP ranges which I will use to block these ranges if the spam starts to come back again but in any case people with existing accounts will be able to continue using them.
