Ok, in the process of unbanning that range then.

I haven't got any human spammers from Canada yet but i wouldn't ban a whole country just for one human spammer. I've banned China and Vietnam because i get a lot of human spammers from them countries and no genuine posters, and the IANA range because it doesn't belong to any country anyway. If there's even one genuine poster from a country i'd never ban it but rather do the moderating instead.

My forum is in Hebrew so banning Canada, the US or any other country is not a problem for me.

I'm having  a problem with a spammer from Poland who repeatedly registers under variations of his name, each time from a different provider. I've deleted about five incarnations over the past couple of days, when this continued I decided to ban Poland using the code PL.  For some reason this has had no effect, he registered today still with an Ip address in Poland.
I wondered whether he was using an anonymous proxy, and I discovered that anonymous proxy has a country code of A1. I entered A1 into the Ban list and this was immediately converted to the Ip adress 78.129.139.242  in the un-ban list. Is this supposed to happen ?

Has this post gone unnoticed or does no one know the answer ?

All I can think of it being an old thread mate. Try a new thread and see if it gets a response that way. It's beyond my knowledge, only Admin could be of use to you here I think.

tail ending old threads means that no alert is seen that you have posted:

What you are saying does sound like a glitch.

But in general Country and ip bans are not a 100% fix for spammers. Nothing is.

Thank you, he appears to have given up anyway.
