    Exclamation Battle of the bots

    I've configured some heavy security in an attempt to block access to the massive number of bots that seem to be trafficking the forums. I'm going to need you guys to post here and let me know how it's working. Post here if you see a lot of bot activity at any given time so I can keep tweaking the security until I've got it to the point where all the bots are permanently blocked access to the server.

    You may have noticed a few PHP include errors a few minutes ago, that was just me editing the code in the forums to include the new security measures. Should all be good now, but let me know if anyone has any issues loading the forums now. This SHOULD block access to the bots, but if it doesn't work I'll keep tweaking it. The bots were loading down our CPU/RAM and causing frequent server overloads on our VPS so it's important those bots are history.

    I'm looking at a log file right now, showing ip's that have been banned as a result of the new security measures. Looks like quite a few have already been denied access. Amazon scrapers and other bot scrapers, etc. So it looks like it's working. How well it works will be determined in the next few days I'm sure.

    We had hundreds of new registrations from bots in the last few days alone. Hopefully this works. = )

    The security I installed should block most/all the bots that attempt to visit the site/forums. It will also block any hacking attempts by individuals. Let me know if innocent person gets banned though, because it may be touchy.
