I just banned another 3 spam bots.
We just have to wait.

Since we installed the ban yesterday, we have had 33 hits coming from the hostname *.triolan.net, and all 33 were successfully blocked.
Atleast the ban seems to work.
When you add a ban, if it makes sense try and ban the whole hostname TLD next time (use wildcards *) , you might catch more.
