    XF 2.0 I'm fed up with spammers posting 500 posts a day on xenForo

    Also, as an aside I run a few other sites on the same server ( WordPress and a couple of other things for family) so everything on the server is "protected" not just the forums which I forgot to mention as part of the reasoning to do this with iptables/ipset rather than internally with...

    XF 2.0 I'm fed up with spammers posting 500 posts a day on xenForo

    That add-on would do the trick, however it's at the forum level, so hackers/spammers can see there's a forum there, my solution, such as it is, works at the firewall, before any webpage is rendered or sent to the client, dropping packets from unwanted countries before they see the forum.
