    We'll handle it. Thanks! We're going to implement the ability to file abuse reports on fan testimonials for this very reason. Heh. Thanks again!

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

    Is it a bot or a human?

    Human. A bot would have been moving much faster.

    Bots have become quite sophisticated... will OpenStudy ever have its own bot?

    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.

    Is it not possible to block the IP or something of that sort?

    We can, but they changed IPs.

    So then you can't say if it was senegal or not, right?

    I'm sure they could easily link IP address to particular regions...

    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.

    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.
