And that's the problem. The majority of IP addresses you'll get are from
dial-up pools and other common uses. Blocking it permanently does no
good... the guy who attacked you is no longer there.

As an example, when I block IP addresses dynamically, I unblock them
after two days. I have almost *never* seen an IP address repeat itself,
and after a while I stopped even checking for repeats.
