Also this past weekend ... this site has been down for a time.... It has nothing to do with the members. It has everything to do with bots hammering the page...... I have been overrun with emails about it. Last year and this year we are going over our site use allowed because of this.

That might explain why I get this when I try to bring up this site:
Its been doing it more and more ....

Managed to log in tonight ,

As Steve says above, We have a limited daily/Monthly Quota on the forum which is large enough, But these Computer Spam BOTs are hitting us hard this past couple months and more so this last week,, I couldnt log in myself in the evening due to our Quota being maxed out so been unable to try to remedy things,

But have just Banned 3000 IPs for Bots, hopefully this will help , will keep looking for others and also block them also.. Hopefully this will resolve the problem when our new quota kicks in at US Midnight..

As can be seen,
These Spam BOT IPs are now blocked, But shows how vicious they are trying to screen the forum multiple times in the same minute..

Same exact message I was getting too! So I wasn't the only one! From Monday until now, I haven't been able to get on as that message was the only thing I was seeing.
BOTS, another word for "hackers"?

Yeah would be the same for every member, As once we hit the Quota our Host Server automatically shuts the forum and displays that message..

Like right now there are 5 folks online with 34 guests. Are all these guests bots? If so, would we be able to "block" them at will, to help out the cause?

Hey Pete,
Some of the guests are genuine, some may be BOTs,, unless we individually check every IP we dont know if genuine or not,, But when viewing "Whos Online" if you then click "Last Activity" If it shows the same IP multiple times viewing multiple threads, then its a BOT..
Only Admin can Ban the IPs, as its all done in the AdminCP part of the forum, where all the Settings and Database is.. So unfortunately members arent able to help ...

How do we members block a bot?

Rebels-59
11-09-2016, 09:51 PM
IF a member does see the same IP viewing multiple threads, then they can note the IP address and inform Admin , we can then Block them, But unsure if Members view IP Addresses on the "Whos Online page"..

Speaking of conspiracy theories, this was strange. I went on my ipad to this site, got a pop up about how the request could not be processed because of a token. Um wtf does that mean? LMAO

That means you have to send me a large regular payment of US dollars or the boys will come round to your house.
