It'd be nice to only allow new registrations from a specific country and block all others.

For example, I have no users that are outside of the U.S.

If there was a way to block all non-U.S. registration attempts it would save a bunch of busy work blocking various IPs.

blocking IPs really does no good. proxies allow changing them to another range.

also, if you have a ton of IPs in your list, your board will suffer.

i only block as a temporary measure, the remove it at a later time, so as to have ZERO in my ip list.

captcha and stopforumspam combo help.
