I read it was possible to block users by IP using the ht access file..
So next question is, can you block a range of users, and do IP addresses give you any geographical indication?
And, lastly, would this be ethical?
I don't see an ethical question at all. A site that advertizes for a mail order business that only services Europe, for example, may wisely choose not to allow visitors from the US to avoid international orders/shipping costs. The person that builds a site and pays the server fees has the right to exclude any visitors he chooses.
I don't see any reason why you *shouldn't* do it... but I don't see any really effective way that you *could* do it either.
