    Question Do you block any countries?

    Hi, I have been reading, among other things, old posts here on the forum about blocking traffic from certain countries. I've read posts by supporters who claimed that there is a lot of bad bot traffic from certain countries, such as India, China, Russia, Ukraine or African traffic. While others felt that it was not worth blocking traffic from any location as it could be a viable player.
    Another reason for blocking could be legal reasons.

    So do you block traffic to your site from any locations?

    I am not doing it at the moment and I am not thinking about it because I have no traffic, but I am asking out of curiosity.

    Unfortunately due to AU laws, and being based here, I've blocked AU traffic since Aug 2017, on any site which promotes gambling. Having the fed police knocking on my door, isn't something I desire.

    Don't necessarily block countries however with geo-targeting visitors are warned that the site is not available to them.

    Block several countries (about 20) for multiple reasons.
    Some because their traffic is mostly spam / hacker / bots, some because they never bet online, and some for a combination of both.

    I also block a large number of bots and old browser versions (usually cheap scraper bots).
