Entire country gets banned from editing on Wikipedia

As Qatar has only one IP range for its entire country, some miscreant who has been vandalizing Wikipedia entries has caused the entire country to lose editing access.

Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain are other countries with this bizzare internet setup, which is handy, as one person notes, to block viewers in those countries from viewing unacceptable sites.

However ther downside is obvious, block one bad user from your site and the entire country is banned.
