Doesn’t work, for whatever reason

For whatever reasons, I cannot get this plugin to work. I’ve tried banning both an entire IP range, as well as each IP within that range and I am still receiving visitor reports stating that my site is receiving visitors from that range.

Total Attempts = 0 ???

It appears my Ban Stats isn’t working. I’m showing 0 attempts. Does it only track the Banned IPs or does it also track Banned Referers?
