His was the reason i did this as I see a few issues...

False positives with modifications like this for some.
It talks back to his servers for the country block list.

  • If his servers go down, this part of the modification will not work.
  • If he decides to close shop this part of the modification will not work.
  • If he decides not to offer the service, this part of the modification will not work.
  • For those on limited bandwidth, it is using their quota up (even minimally)
  • Potential slowdowns with retrieving the information, whether it be many connections to his server or a few too many hops between you and them, or even 1 hop experiencing high latency.
Mine is a 100% in house solution, that is not relying on someone else to provide the information.
