    Is there a way to block all countires except Canada?

    I have local forum and once I did mistake and posted my forum on some other forum to let users vote about its look. This was my big mistake.

    A lot of spammers are comming from that site.

    Is there a way to block all IP's that does not belong to Canada?

    There is a way, but it has to be done "manually": what you can do is take a list of all known Internet Service Providers in Canada, and put a regular expression in the server side code (PHP for instance) that displays only a blank page unless the regular expression matches one of the IPs of Canada.
