Over the past couple of weeks we have been getting hit with an occasional wave of automated bots.... Business as usual on the internet I guess.
When they hit, they drive up server load so high that the server doesn't respond or it gives a db connection error. My server company is working with me to resolve the problem and to keep the bad guys at bay. If you guys see this happening, feel free to email me at admin -at- Bobcatsplanet.com so I can jump right on getting it fixed.
Do bots = more page views? Which = more ad money?
Are the bots helping?
Trying to gain our trust?
then there are bad bots that search through the web, find your login pages and then pound the bejeezus out of them with random passwords trying to get lucky with a login so that they can wreak havoc, there are also some evil bots that do nothing but search through the web and do nothing but try to register/post on your site so that they can post their BS spam links... lately I've been trying to block out the bad guys.
