Due really high suspicious connections to forum and wiki from this IP block, I just blocked the whole ip range.

Still a hugely abnormal amount of guest users imho. Hope no 0-day like vBulletin forums that were nearly all hacked recently :)

Lose nothing if temporary (if not permanently restrict access) and look what then will happen.

I have play with mysql db cache settings and I think most of the performance problems are passed away now.

Have you done your own pen-testing using a tool like sqlmap?
