Drastically reduce server load

The list acts as a pre-emptive scanner, instantly recognizing known bots, attackers & troublemakers and dropping connection with ipset/iptables at a system level, way before it reaches the web server. This proactive approach helps prevent unauthorized access attempts, DoS attacks, and other malicious activities that could otherwise place a significant burden on server resources.
