I can't see why they are useful so I've politely told them to go away via the file "/robots.txt". Let's see what happens in 15 minutes' time.

It's been a while since I looked at who was online, but when I have, the majority of guests are search engine spiders.

OK it may take them longer to pick up the request

In theory search engine spiders are good, right? I mean, everybody wants accurate search results. As long as they're not acting like that one French spider that can't stop checking for new posts every 2 seconds. (Certainly can't identify with that impulse myself. Nope. Not me.)

I... I can't tell any longer

People still come to us via search results, so I guess so. But this engine is Ukrainian (it was just pretending to be French) and I can't tell what it actually does.

Ahrefs has not stopped spidering so we will move to banning their IPs

Earlier I attempted to post a Liveleak video but, despite my best endeavours, couldn't do so.

My impression is that the string of characters/digits after the = symbol are copied, pasted in the reply box, highlighted and then have the Liveleak tags wrapped around them by means of the appropriate button.

I tried that method to no avail. Could someone kindly point me in the right direction, please?

Ta!

actually I think LiveLeak has stopped permitting embedded videos in general, but couldn't find proof of that

I should remove the button

Thanks for that, UT!

It did occur to me that that might be the case.

I was looking this up in the vBulletin forums and found an old '06 entry that indicates there have always been some restrictions:

Then I saw a '15 entry that gave an embed code:

I noticed that the LiveLeak URL in the example code above, as recent as '15, was still using "http" rather than "https" and I'm wondering if the Cellar's embed code has been changed to the latter since both the Cellar and LiveLeak are now secured with "https" URLs. Does that make a difference?

That ain't working. I think the embed policy changed more recently than 2015

No that should not make a difference

Every time I go into the Facebook is killing everything thread it tries to kill my computer.

I keep getting a 'threat detected' message from my anti-virus software and then it tels me it has 'safely aborted connection on cellar.org because it was infected with HTML-Facebook-A [Phish].'

Weird...

There are only two links on the page that aren't usual, the original Splitsider link and a nytimes link. I've remove the splitisder link, does it still do it?
