Unfortunately there are a lot of spammers and we don't have time to check the source: we just blacklist the offending range - usually a whole 256 subnet. Normally they are Russian/Romanian or remote countries with little to do with Castlebar or Ireland. But if it's a legit Irish range we will unblock it and deal with the spam using the bad words filter or just deleting it as it arrives.

As for Blogspot - we get an amazing amount of pretty obnoxious spam from Blogspot so it's in the bad words filter rather than an IP address blacklist.
