Journal salvorHardin's Journal: Blocked all of Brazil and Columbia

My hosting provider has recently decided to block all IPs from Brazil and Columbia, and yet register_globals is turned on, because obviously if somebody wants to access a site from Rio de Janiero, it is more reasonable to ask them to move to a different country, than it is to ask web developers to use $_POST['name'] instead of $name.
Apparently Fantastico doesn't work unless globals are on, but I can't find anything in the install/troubleshoot docs to back this up, but I can find plenty of people posting their PHP.ini files to the support forums where register_globals are turned on, and yet hasn't caused a problem. A brief search of the site for 'register_globals' returns 0 documents.
