I have a web site, but I've had to block access from all sites since
I have various concerns about the foreign policies and human rights
records of every country on the planet (and some others besides).

As a result, I get very little traffic...  sad, really.

I'm happy to report that the frequency of DOS attacks on my site are
way, way down, however.
