That's the interesting thing here re the sledge hammer analogy. The spammers 
in the country are the minority by far with most being legit users. Blocking 
the entire country is punishing mostly innocent people perse :( Even then 
it's so easy  to fake the country you appear to com from so blocking the 
apparent country might actually be blocking innocent people beyond that which 
I already alluded to. So much in mail headers these days is faked that you 
can't simply believe which country they apparently come from :(
