The networks are all listed in my post; however, I didn't save the actual target IPs that caused me to block those networks.

Ironically, ost of them turned out to be the web sites of companies offering DDoS mitigation services or appliances. Several others were web hosting and co-lo service companies.

Currently, there is this address:

dig tells me:

Looks like a hosting site.
