    Someone has copied a promotion message that I post here into a Turkish website.
    Since than I get lots of submissions although it states quite clear that I only accept English website - they just spending my time and their time.
    what can I do?
    is anyone know a script to block access from one country? I have nothing against the Turks they are nice people with nice county, but leave me and my directory alone ...

    That's a pretty cool site Mike, I've never seen that.

    If you're using Apache you can also run mod_geoip but it takes some configuring. Read this and when installed this would be your .htaccess ruleset:

    GeoIPEnable On
    GeoIPDBFile /usr/local/share/GeoIP/GeoIP.dat
    
    RewriteCond %{ENV:GEOIP_COUNTRY_CODE} ^TR$ [OR]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ - [F]
    Code (markup):

    I know, how dare they!

    LoL, sorry couldn't resist :D

    If you don't want to block the country as Mikey suggested you could try to find out some common Turkish words and blacklist them making it impossible to submit.

    Even though you clearly state that you only accept English web sites, half of the submitters probably can't read and understand it.

    I got around 100 spam submissions with Russion language sites every day. Want some script to stop it without blocking the ip from Russian.

    So, am I the only one that thought it was hilarious that a thread complaining about stupid people was made by someone who can't even spell stupid correctly?

    Sorry, formula, couldn't resist. :D

    If you are allowing only English sites then it wo n't be a problem as you can check title,description for english letters with Php and for Non English letters you can throw a javascript error...stating that only English sites are allowed...

    better block only the ip of the spammer..
    don't block the whole country..
    i'm from malaysia.. and i know the frustration of living in a country full of dumbasses that kept getting themselves banned from various sites...(i'm still waiting for thinkgeek to open up orders from us:()
