    You can/should be able to block IP ranges in your cpanel through your hosting solution.

      Blocking by country or IP Address isn't very effective on the software level such as vBulletin. Plus IP Addresses can be easily changed or spoofed via proxies and VPNs services.

      Do you have the anti-spam tools under Settings -> Spam Management turned on?

        No, I looked and it seems like I need a subscription to a service
