256 + IPís over 12 spamming IPís:: counting on fingers ::

You mean they locked out an entire /24 (in IPv4 terms) due to detected behavior in 12 individual IPs? Were the 12 scattered all over the map, at least? If not, it seems like overkill.
At the same time, you can see the rationale. If someone allowed good ol' cyberpromo dot com--remember them?--to exist on their servers for more than an hour, it's safe to assume the rest of the server would go bad at any time.
