Default Can you block a certain isp ad. from your website?

We have noticed that this isp 216.198.100.253 looks at our site several times a day for about a year now. It is getting on our nerves. Do any of you know how we can block them?
Thanks!

Why? If I liked your site and looked at it every day would I get on your nerves?

Which means it could be an IP shared by thousands of users.

Default Bobby, how can you tell they have blocks?

Does that mean you can see where others have blocked them from their sites? It's weird because all they do is hit our index page like 4 times a day, everyday. They don't look at our pages that gets regularly updated listings. Can you shed any light here for me? Thanks!

By block he meant block of IP's in the same range:

NetRange: 216.198.100.0 - 216.198.100.255

216.198.100.253 belongs in that range.

I looked at their website, they are a telephone and internet provider. So, sounds like you have someone who uses them for their internet provider and they like your site and visits regularly. If your interested in the their provider, they are at ftc-i dot net

Thanks for the info. I looked at our daily log of them, which is about 50+ lines long, and each day they look at our index page 7 to 9 times. The info on our index page does not change. It simply tells about our company. They have been doing this for over a year now. Everytime I go to check our statcounter, there they are with their huge file log. It just doesn't make any sense.
