This Is Why I Don't Like Keeping The Site Open To "Guests"

Have a look, two pages of hits from the same IP address just now...it takes it's toll on the site's resources, slows everything down and is generally a BAD THING! Fortunately, this time, it's Amazon searching our site for information that it can use (which I hate too) but this could just as easily have been some hacker from Russia, We had one from Germany yesterday that I caught early and banned his IP address.

4 valid users out of two full pages of bandwidth suckers, not good John.

 

What benefit is there for Amazon to be able to view our forums?

I can't think of any.

 

But, on the other side, forums typically have a lot lookie-lew types who are just casting about to see what we are all about.

 

on the Steve Saunders forum, the unregistered folks are blocked from viewing the images, are you doing that?

I've got them locked down to pretty much to only viewing the forums and topics, they can't post anywhere or view any of the other things we have especially the Gallery and things like that.

We were getting flooded with spammers over at Goldwingfacts using throw away emails and now the emails they use have been blocked.  Earlier I dumped a couple of spammers off of 2 out of the 5 forums I moderate.  Watch for these emails from new members getnada.com, yopmail.fr and a new one I just found inbox.com.
