When you decide to probe the server, we consider this as a active attempt at abuse, your IP is firewalled as soons as it comes to our attention. Entities that persist, will find that we will escalate to a larger block.

Certain probes are considered minor irritations, where as others are considered more serious. We will decide at our discretion. Its about security, not perceived right.

The following is an example of consistant probing, with login attempts, their IP classes are in all firewalls.
