I'm a little curious as to why I'm seeing this

Attachment 61808

about half the time right after I post. Haven't seen it before, and I'm not trying to post a poll.

Any ideas?

Bueller?

It seems that if there's a slowdown/delay in processing the post, for whatever reason, the message appears to let you that the content was received and is being processed; so, you won't resubmit it.

Looking pretty. The lawsuit would bring a lot of free publicity too. :D

UT, Firefox on Win7 machine saying your security certificate expired 30 minutes ago, won’t load site.

Happens with the Cellar homepage; but, direct links to other pages (like profiles, BB code list) go right through.

I can override the warning too.

This is fixed

We seem to get recurring spam-like new user registrations for an essay writing service. The service's website URL is listed as the user's homepage in their profile. Does banning the IP address for the website stop reregistration under another user name; or, do they register here from IP addresses not affiliated with their website?

Undertoad 12-29-2017 12:58 PM

No, it's always a different IP. I've deleted all home pages for anyone with fewer than 10 posts.

Undertoad 12-29-2017 01:52 PM

And all users that had links in their Interests/Location/etc. and 0 posts have been deleted. This is a problem, because they can't be prevented from using them before they are Confirmed as real posting users.

I note that the currently active users stats tend to show 275, or thereabouts, guest users.

Is there any way of determining if they are bona fide guests or automated systems with the ultimate intention of generating new spam members.

There never seems to be a shortage of those, does there? :eek:

Undertoad 01-08-2018 07:20 AM

Most of the traffic is search engine bots. But the only way to know for sure is to go through the logs by hand...

Thanks for that, UT.

As I type there are 262 'guests'. The number seems remarkably consistent.

Undertoad 01-08-2018 09:39 AM

About 200 of them are one single poorly-behaved French spider, with addresses like:

ip72.ip-54-36-148.eu

Who knows what they are doing, I sure don't
