Today we have reached a milestone, with over 1000 Russian IP blocks in the ban list. If anybody doesn't believe that Russia is the Wild West of the Internet, then if they are trying that hard to get into TAW what else are they up to?

Each block is at least 256 IP addresses (some much bigger) and it blocks attempts to register on TAW.

Even after being blocked they often keep trying, sometimes many hundreds of times.

This probably isn't appropriate for here (?) but why does Talkawhile show on my browser (Chrome) as 'NOT SECURE!'?
