    I got an email from the forum system informing me that someone is trying to log into my account with the wrong password. An IP address was included in the email; I won't post it here but I don't recognise it and it's based in a country that I have no relation to.

    I just wanted to give a heads-up in case there's a larger attack taking place or something.

    These IPs for me today:

    188.143.234.14
    188.143.234.6
    188.143.235.118

    Can someone just ban that whole IP range?

    Will unchecking "Receive Email from Administrators" stop the annoying emails?

    I got a bunch of them as well.
    188.143.234.14
    188.143.234.6

    How about banning 188.143.234.0 so you catch his entire range? Sure any1 in those 255 number would be locked out...but the odds that it would block a legit user is extremely slim.
