blocklist versus prohibit in linux networking

tube recycle those 1's and 0's

tube recycle those 1’s and 0’s

Both do the same sort of thing (my blog) except that it prohibit bad traffic except that prohibit tells you why.

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback  
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
          RX packets:818717 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:818717 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 
          RX bytes:232611001 (221.8 MiB)  TX bytes:232611001 (221.8 MiB

Mind you

RX bytes:552785153 (527.1 MiB)  TX bytes:552785153 (527.1 MiB)

Is proof there is a lot of traffic not worth responding to
