I guess you also have company policy of not employing anybody who might
know anybody from China? ;-)

I never said how you should configure your machines, eh. I only argued
about blocking entire countries in general. Somebody in China might as
well say that only email he gets from US is spam. And than we all live
in our little small vilages again. And get the same amount of spam we
were getting while we were living in global world. It's kind of
pointless at the end of the story.
