Oh god, I forgot to select "plain old text".

> And, btw, what is the FBI doing going after a brazilian national anyway? Isn't that slightly out of their jurisdiction?

From TFA: "According to the report, the fed only requested help from USA in early 2009, after experts from the National Institute of Criminology (INC) failed to decode the passwords on the hard drives."

It's badly translated, but "fed" is the Brazilian Federal Police and INC is a Brazilian institute.

Why don't you whitelist the blocks from your region instead?
Banning Brazil is a stupid thing because:

a. The majority of spammers aren't using Brazilian IP's;
b. The majority of Brazilian IP's aren't being used by spammers, legitimate users will come and they should not be blocked.

Besides that's kind of a dick move, the US has been the top spam source for years and no one banned their IP ranges.
