    What countries do you recommend blocking?

    Well I just set up my first proxy(well... within the last 24 hours) and I was wondering which countries I should block and such, and what sites should I use to generate the blockage for .htaccess.

    I asked the same question a while back and was told to block Iran, China and Turkey, and a couple of guys suggested using blockacountry.com to generate the htaccess file.

    Ok, thanks for your web. I've just blocked Iran, China and Saudi Arabia. If any of the other countries give me problems(All of the countries that I blocked where much main users(of bandwidth :/)), I'll just block them. : D

    You might want to block;

    China
    Iran
    Saudi Arabia
    Nigeria
    Ghana
    Indonesia
    Turkey
    Romania

    Block Lebanon, Russia, Pakistan and Vietnam too if they eat up/spam through your proxies.
