hey there dave

hrm. if block: is indeed correct for ip addresses, then i might try  
changing the description on http://pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/Blocklist  
which almost makes it sound like any IP address on one's blocklist  
page will be blocked. i'll make it more explicit if indeed this is  
the case.

as for the wild card, if indeed it works, then why would a post from be able to be posted if i had block:194.44.* listed on  
my blocklist page? i just have a feeling that maybe something is a  
little off there...

thanks again!
