Quarantine is when you restrict the movement of sick people.

Tyranny is when you restrict the movement of healthy people.

The system is running extremely slow now, the bots must be busier than usual

It's probably your ISP. A lot of locations are experiencing slow internet due to so many folks not working. I haven't seen any issues with BS for several days. I've spent hours blocking thousands and thousands of Chinese IPs.

Party line! Wow, that's a stroll down memory lane. I bet there's some youngsters here who have no idea what that means. I can remember my dear grandma complaining of a neighbor who listened in to her calls.

When the site slows down and you get errors, it's probably because of the Chinese bots. They can only see the public threads but they also try to "Brute Force" their way into the backend. I get an email every time a Brute Force attack takes place. Our server automatically blocks those IPs but they just move on to a different one.

If you're having trouble with the site, go to the bottom of the home page and check how many guests are online.

Have you tried using cloudflare or something? altho that costs money.

Cloudflare requires that all data, in and out, goes through their servers. I don't trust them. Instead I'm adding IP ranges to the blocked list every day. Most of China is blocked now. Working on Russia and Ukraine.

We have now blocked the entire country of China from accessing Bullionstacker. Big thanks to joefro for providing the info and instructions. :clap:
