    i do not think it is possible for you to block an ISP.
    an individual user, yes.
    maybe one of the resident experts can shed some more light on this one.

    It's very possible but depends on your set up

    If you use a firewall then you can set that to block the entire ISP range of IP numbers. That will stop you contacting anything on that IP range and anything from that IP range contacting you. BUT be warned blocking an entire IP range can have unwanted consequenses and you might not be able to vist lots of websites
