Are you guys just blocking using IP Deny in shared hosting or quick deny in the Firewall on a VPS server?
Different people here use different methods, although I don't ever recall any "special" method being described for VPS.
About the ranges, is /24 the one that includes the entire range?
I see some people using /18, /15..etc?
the forward slash and the number that follows it are part of CIDR definitions for IP ranges.
the slash-number (/n) is dependent upon what precedes it.
There are numerous CIDR tools across the www.
There's a wiki page on CIDR which will assist you.
