You mean the criteria that it comes from the Class A is not enough reason
89 = the entire continent of Europe plus the bits of Asia that are covered by RIPE 89.107 = ditto, broken into /21 chunks, still covering the map 89.107.224-231 = Turkey, apparently further subdivided into /24 segments that make me regret I don't read Turkish, though I'm sure someone hereabouts does.
I haven't been much plagued with Turkish robots. Even get the occasional legitimate visitor. Well, possibly a mistaken visitor looking for something else, but that's not their fault. Turkey may not be amenable to wilderness's particular widgets. I would have to look it up :(

[enphormasyon.org...] has information about the campaign against them.
