emanmb Posted June 29, 2013 Share Posted June 29, 2013 Living now in Bangkok things on the internet have changed for me. Sites are blocked by Thai censors, sites don't work that are in the US and now I've run across this dork who's selling a "PHP website anti-hacking, anti-exploit and anti-spam scri_pt" and unfortunately people are using it and blocking me with that! I tried to access a site (http://lightzoneproject.org/) for their software which was recommended to me, and was greeted by this lovely message. http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z210/em...28at10624AM.png There is no recourse, no way to communicate with the site to let them know I am being blocked, nor anyway to let them know the product they bought is sh**. So I went to the makers website www.spambotsecurity.com/zbblock.phpâ€Ž and of course I get the same lame-a__ message so I can't even contact him. So I found a youtube video promoting this junk and posted my complaint there as there is no other way to get to them. I use True Internet Thailand, probably the largest ISP here and my IP is 220.127.116.11. Here is the discussion. Me: I triedï»¿ going to one of your client's sites yesterday and was greeted by a lovely message claiming I was a bothost. I use True Internet Thailand. I then went to whatismyipaddress and checked my IP (18.104.22.168) and found that 95%+ found my IP to be NOT blacklisted. I don't know if it is your product or poor implementation by the site owners/builders, but having to access a site via Tor browser just to view it is BS usually reserved for getting around censors. Me: I just tried to go to yourï»¿ site spambotsecurity and got the same message saying 403 I am a bothost. Great job guys in blocking non-spamming non-blacklisted IP's. Him: Just do a google search on "asianet.co.th spam" and see what turns up. Due to personal experience with spam from that ISP, and the fact they were listed as rfc-ignorant at the time the block against them was instituted, the block remainsï»¿ in effect. HOWEVER: 1. Webmasters can set a trouble-ticket email address in the scri_pt if they so desire. 2. In the ZB Block Manual, there is concise instructions on how to bypass anything around a block. Him: Sorry, but I forgot to mention I have records of hacks coming from your ISP too. I don't give a whit what other blacklists say, most of my scri_pt is my own, andï»¿ my users research & experience. Me: That does a legit user trying to access a global site absolutely no good whatsoever as any communication with the blocked siteï»¿ is blocked. I don't know who "asia/co/th" is as my ISP is True Internet Co and your "not giving a whit" has blocked, if my experience is mirrored by other True customers, the largest ISP in Thailand for a site (lightzoneproject DOT o r g) that needs to have a global reach as they provide software. Presently there is no way to reach it thanks to your approach.... Me: ...nor can I reach your site to try to rectify the issue.ï»¿ This leaves a legit user trying to access a global site where? I hate spam as much as the next person but this person/company is, as they say here in Thailand, oVER! They're short changing their clients and blocking legitimate users from accessing their sites. Argggh! Stymied by the club-fisted approach to internet security! I did a blacklist search on my IP and here's the screen shot of that. http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z210/em...8at114359AM.png [Edit] img tags converted to links.
