Dear Chinese Hackers

How stupid do you think I am?

I see you, from the 163data network.

It's not that I don't admire your tactics, in fact, I would very much like to know exactly how you detect when LastPass is sending out a verification email to me because I connected from a different IP address.

Attempting to connect to my account shortly thereafter, from an IP address geographically close to me, so that I receive an almost identical verification email that will push the original one down in the threaded email view is pretty smart.

Unfortunately, I always check such things before clicking links.

So please stop with these shenanigans, it's getting old... (Do drop me an email though, I'm sure you can find my contact information!)

And while we're at it, could you also stop the occasional IP-bans of my blog? It's not like there's anything subversive on their. Each time I have to spend half an hour moving my server and updating the DNS, and it's starting to annoy me, especially when I'm on the move and have to do it from my phone...
