    Site weirdness

    The site's been acting strange this weekend, with database issues. I've been repairing them as they emerge, and I just did a backup just in case.

    Work is going to be busy this week with the release of the first draft of a new comp plan, so I won't be online that much. The mods will be getting my number if anything comes up.

    Okay, some of the problems are thanks to Daum, a Korean search engine spider. The IP range used by Daum has been blocked for a while, because it's extremely aggressive when it crawls Cyburbia, and their spiders seem to ignore the robots.txt protocol. We blocked the Daum spider in the past, but it started accessing Cyburbia from a couple of new IP blocks. They've been added to the block.

    I also blocked a Russian IP address that was hitting up pages 20 or 30 times in a second, and for good measure, the entire amazonaws.com IP range, where hundreds of SEO-related bots and spiders make their home.
