And now the good news...
For ages I'd had
184.108.40.206/22 ("bulletproof-web", Russia)
blocked on grounds of general robotitude.
Guess it wasn't as bulletproof as they thought; the range currently seems to be unassigned. RIPE being RIPE, you would expect this situation to last five or ten minutes, tops. But they may have closed up shop as long as six months ago.
