I can relate to this since my family runs a chain of stores in SoCal. We cannot deny anyone entrance into our properties UNLESS they are a repeat nuisance, but even then, we would have to file a police report, etc. etc.

That being said, I think I am as free as any webmaster to deny traffic from anyone/anywhere without due cause. I have no need to ever explain my actions, if I feel like banning someone, I'm within my rights to do so. After all, I am the one paying for the webhosting and everything right?
