This is the list of countries currently blocked to reduce the amount of spam / abuse:
The list is going to change over time with more places being added and removed.
We’ve had a lot of issues with spammers and every time we give our members new features a small group exploits that feature to try to cheat someone. So, instead of adding some awesome features, we’ve been working on anti-spam stuff for a while.
Today we’ve added a feature to block people based on their IP address, country or other things. Most of the abusers are coming from Senegal for example, so for now, until we have a better way to stop the spam we’re blocking that country and some others. Its a shame but so far we don’t have many legitimate inquiries from that area anyway. Later when our anti-spam systems are more advanced, perhaps we’ll open the gates again to people in those parts of the world.
Have you ever heard of the amazing and inspirational Carl Sagan?
Carl Sagan was an American astronomer, astrophysicist, cosmologist, author and science communicator. Why inspirational? Well, there are many intelligent beings in the world but not all of them are capable of communicating and appealing to the people like Carl Sagan did. Carl Sagan did this through his books and various media (The Cosmos being especially popular).
Why bring him up now?
Well, today, along with many other humans, Carl Sagan was born 78 years ago on November 9th 1934. So happy Carl Sagan Day!
“For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love.” - Carl Sagan.
“If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the Universe”. - Carl Sagan.
