Hmm, if we appled that logic, traffic from the US would be cut off
from entering Canada. The two countries who target Canadian IPs
on a regular basis are China and the US. 


In fact, all spam does not trace back to China, nor any other
country. Spam traces back to, you guessed it, the US of A. 
That is where the targeted demographic is, and that is where 
money trail traces back to. Follow the money a little further
Mike, it doesn't end up where you think. 

I am not arguing for, or against blocking all traffic from 
any country, far from it. Your logic does not seem to bear
up under scrutiny.
