I've dropped an IPBan, so they shouldn't be a problem anymore.

Is it a bot or a human?
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
Human. A bot would have been moving much faster.

Bots have become quite sophisticated... will OpenStudy ever have its own bot?
anonymous
  • anonymous
maybe an Owlbot welcoming folks
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
We do have a bot that sits in our team chatroom. But he mostly does statistics about how many people are online. And puts moustaches on pictures for us.

Behind-the-scenes bots; nice.

if it's senegal i dont think they care :D

Is it not possible to block the IP or something of that sort?
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
We can, but they changed IPs.
2bornot2b
  • 2bornot2b
So then you can't say if it was senegal or not, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm sure they could easily link IP address to particular regions...
anonymous
  • anonymous
Trouble with blocking entire IPs is that perhaps the IP is shared by other folks in the region; IP blacklisting is often a last-resort type of thing.
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
No, the IP is from Senegal. IP Addresses are assigned to organizations in blocks. Both originated from the same regional ISP in Senegal. I doubt it was a proxy.
