Ben, if we denied /googlemail.com you could not see our site. This is the type of information our security team has set up. Does it conflict with any accessibility standards?
As I mentioned earlier, our security team keeps track of users by IP address and also check out other sites where our domain is posted, but should not be.
What can we do to maintain security while maintaing accessibility
What criteria(s) are in conflict, if any?

You're asking us for help. But you need to help us help you.

Please answer my simple questions:

1. "[Do you] have special reason to think that blocking by IP or referrer would reduce the accessibility of your website to people with disabilities?"

2. "Which of the success criteria listed at http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/ do you think might conflict with blocking HTTP requests by IP or referrer?"

It's not obvious why you would think this, so please explain your thought process.
