block 192.168.x.x and 10.x.x.x too! Those damn router login pages are used by pirates, only criminals port-forward.

To be fair 127.0.0.1 does pirate a WHOLE lot of stuff....
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

Did I miss a joke? That resolves to a Google Cloud IP.

Exactly. As the worlds biggest search engine the internet would lose its marbles if it suddenly went offline Smiling Face With Open Mouth

Just goes to show how automated and thoughtless these takedown notices are.

Must be scripts or someone blindly copy/pasting text into generic templates. Gotta be efficient if you wanna spam.

Oh... I get it now. It's not a Google Cloud IP (as in one of their cloud services) it resolves to Google the search engine.
I stuffed the IP into Maxmind and it resolved to Google Cloud so I assumed it was one of their servers for rent. I couldn't figure out how blocking that would do anything.
Still though... blocking one IP for Google Search isn't gonna do squat. There's a bunch more where that came from lol.

That's why I didn't understand the joke... I looked up who owned the IP but not what was at the IP.

So being a bored little shit, I decided to google what IPs Google uses.
Turns out they have millions of IPs. Here's the full list:

Now... obviously Google doesn't use all of these just for their search engine, but it wouldn't shock me if they used a few thousand of them.

Fun fact: That's JUST Google's stuff.
Their consumer cloud has even more IPs:

That's a lot of tube destinations....

Back in the early days of the internet people used to put up a lot of you have reached the end of the internet joke pages.
Perhaps Google is the actual end of the internet.

Sure. Make a post in food. Unless it's already there and I haven't read it yet.
I doubt it's sensitive so no real reason to take it to PMs.

Or just the beginning?

QFT! And 172.16.0.0/20 many networks of pirates there.
They should also block 127.0.0.2 and everything up to 127.255.255.255. THINK - OF - THE - CHILDREN!
Also, don't forget ipv6 pirate addresses like 0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0001 that try to hide behind their zeroes.
