    If you use Cloudflare (or any other caching mechanism) iQ Block Country cannot do it’s best job anyhow.

    So not really a reason for a 1 star review imho.

    Sorry Pascal, But I have had IQ running for a few months. I have had Cloudfare running for 2 days.

    In that case too bad that you did not send a support ticket with an export of your configuration earlier on I probably could have helped you get the installation running 🙂

    She trashed my plugin too:

    It’s like Cloudflare spam or something.

    Sorry if I have offended you guys, I really am. But I have had absolute headaches for a few months trying to overcome the problem of Russian robots crowding my resources. I even had to upgrade my hosting account at a greater cost. And all that time I had the plugins running. No, they were not conflicting, I had each one on a different site, trying to find one that worked. I was shocked when I started using Cloudfare and saw it successfully block the robots (700 blocks in 13 days). I don’t work for Cloudfare, I am just frustrated and wanted something that works. Jeff, I am presuming you are referring to Blackhole. It might have been good if there was any way of manually adding robots to it. It did catch one, an Australian government one, and that’s cool; I didn’t know it existed. But it didn’t catch the ones that Cloudfare caught, mainly the one that attempted to access my login page hundreds of times. You whitelist Yandex (which I removed from your whitelist), yet Yandex is the one trying to get to the login. Why would a robot need to access the login? It can’t be for anything worth whitelisting. And even after removing it from the whitelist, Blackhole didn’t stop it. I am merely pointing out the truth here.

    We feel your pain, but we’re not the bad guys though… but your negative ratings actually hurt our work, our efforts, livelihood, et al.

    I am not offended by a review. Just a bit sad you did not try to get support and just leave a 1 star review.

    But that is your perogative of course. This plug-in is free of cost so you can install en deïnstall whenever you want.

    Then I’m sorry for that. It was a bit of a temper tantrum and if there were any way of doing so I would delete them. Will WP delete them?

    WP does not allow deleting in general, but you always are free to change your rating and/or edit your review anytime. Just log in and revisit the post.
