TraceRoute Internet Protocol Addresses

I started this new Forum for FreeAdLists. Not surprising, I'm getting my share of spammers. I can't believe how efficient these spammers are in finding new venues, especially a brand new one, to spam. I was curious as to where some of these spammers were hailing from. I found a tool by Network Tools that does a traceroute to the destination.

Often times, routers will block traceroute packets, but you still can get a decent idea. BTW, most of my spammers were coming from Europe.

FYI: Comprehensive traceroute guide by country: Traceroute.org
