I needed a quick and dirty way to block a user from my site.

Just include this middleware class under the 'MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES' variable in your settings.py file.

Also include the variable BLOCKED_IPS = ('123.123.123.123',) variable, where the value is a tuple of IP addresses you want blocked from your site.

    def process_request(self, request):
        if request.META['REMOTE_ADDR'] in settings.BLOCKED_IPS:
            return http.HttpResponseForbidden('<h1>Forbidden</h1>')
        return None
