Being relatively anonymous allows me to submit the stupid questions that other people are too afraid to ask.

comment Which http response do you return to a hit from a blacklisted ip?
I feel like there are only about a maximum of 2 or 3 organisations behind 99% of the spam-hits. They do not appear to do probing cos none of their thousands of submissions have ever gone live on my site. Its all a pretty pointless situation - they spend their time achieving nothing, I spend time deleting spam.

Thanks. I'd never heard of Status 403.6. With regards to re-direct back to their IP: Yes, I considered holding up a mirror so everything thrown at us is bounced back to them...but then I realised that duplicating bad traffic wasn't a bright idea. 403, then, is probably the sensible way to go.
