That's dropped the amount of traffic coming in by more than half. And LuxembourgTor8.lu gets a ban too.

I banned everybody above's entire subnet ... literally their entire IP allocation from ICANN. Traffic coming in is now 80% less. Pour one out for our Russian, Cyprus, and Netherlands based bots/trolls.

Yes, I have noticed at least the last 3 weeks the message boards have been really slow to load and navigate different pages.

Around 2-3 weeks ago we broke the thread views mechanism on the board. Part of that is old long arse threads on popular boards. Part of it is is the threads table in the DB is just too massive and the volume of traffic too high to do every single thread view update on demand. So I rewrote that portion of the board so it adds up all the changes it wants to do then pushes one big update every minute. This bypasses about 95% of the queries, since instead of adding 1 120 times to one thread we add 120 once to that thread.

Since then it's been nice and snappy. Until bot-a-geddon today.

What's the point of the bot attack? What do they get out of slowing down a college sports message board?

Oh fun! Good job identifying and blocking those subnets. I wonder if I still have a hard drive with some old eggdrops on it.
