Two tiers of blocking.
Most IPs are shut out at the gate. (I'm sorry, robot, but if your long-time goal is to end war and wipe out world hunger, don't put your base of operations at Hetzner.)
The question marks get redirected. For a while I had up to half a dozen ranges getting the "I don't like your face" page, which says (quote) "If you believe I have misjudged you, borrow a friendís computer and send me an e-mail explaining who you are and what youíre doing." Here I guess it would have to be "a friend in another country". My version of the page has no links of any kind, but you could make a throwaway e-mail address and change it as needed.
