Thanks pmkpmk. I've read through that post a few times and came up with my own "close to perfect .htaccess ban list".
I can buy more bandwidth and I wouldn't mind for just the 60 megabytes/day. But what keeps someone from doing this over and over again? That would amount to more bandwidth than I would want to pay for. And I sure don't want to ban every ISP in the state of Hawaii.
Is it always the same IP? Have you tried looking up the administrative contact with "whois" and simply tried to ask WHY he/she's doing it? If the IP address in your sample is valid, then it's a Verizon DSL account. Drop an email to email@example.com and see what they say...
