Usually the default setup is fine. If you have a lot of user getting blocked we need to know what the message they are getting says.

As Palbin stated, we really need to know what is happening that is leading to the blocking. On some of my sites I've had problems with people copying and pasting from Word into the wysiwyg text areas for instance. Word puts a lot of codes into what it copies over that NS chokes on. You can paste as plain text and the codes get stripped out but so does the formatting. So, if what's happening is that people are submitting news articles or calendar items and using paste from Word you will want to either disable copy from Word or turn off certain blockers. But we need to know first if that's the cause.

so can i ask one thing. in default configurations most of the blockers are in email admin. is that enough to keep the hackers away.

Ok, what kind of site are you running then? If these are truly your site users, it looks like they are making connections to your site from some other software running on their computers, not a browser. This is highly unusual... these types of blocks are usually quite common and desired.

Yes, that very well could be. If you do not care about people ripping your content with these kinds of auto-downloaders, then I would just turn off your Harvestor blocker. The HEAD and GET ones are a bit disconcerting to turn those off, but you may have no choice if this type of downloading is really a key feature for your customers.
