[Firewall] BLOCKED-HOSTS isn't blocking

Am I doing something wrong as it looks like even though iptables says it is
set to DROP my blocked-hosts ip's, it still looks to be allowing them as
Apache logged an invalid file request from one of the IP addresses, and I
know for a fact the iptables rules were in place when this occurred.
