Sorry if the site is slow currently, blame China

Post by Stuka » Thu Nov 07, 2019 7:10 pm

Hey all,

If you were getting some SQL errors today, and were possibly unable to reach the site, it was the result of a DDoS attack that originated in China. So I blocked the whole country. So things will return to normal after a while.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hah, must have forgot. I did have to pay for geo-blocking. But at least the number of bots that join should drop significantly.

Cool. Now, how do I block China on eBay and Amazon? I'm tired of that junk showing up in every search.

You actually can limit your search by location. Although if they are being listed as in the USA, that won't work. But I agree with wishing there just a button to turn em off.

Currently anonymous VPN's are set to view, but not post. Not a permanent change.

Or is it saying you can't view at all?

I says I have been permanently banned based on IP address. I use subscription VPN that is anonymous. There are other sites that don't like the use of them. This was just the first time it happened on this site. I can work with it, just won't log into IFSJN unless on my home network and feeling secure.. 8^)

If you can, try it again, and let me know if it still happens.
