Over the last few days a single IP – – has downloaded approximately 270GB of traffic from

I noticed today when my web host warned me I was approaching my monthly quota of 400GB.

I have applied an IP ban to stop the bleed, but I'm warning folks ahead of time that I may have to take the site offline for a few days towards the end of the month in order to avoid excess usage charges.

I'm happy to keep the site online if the culprit sends over a payment to cover the charges. Feel free to reach out to me directly.

I apologise for the inconvenience caused.

Fun fact, the back end database for this forum is a little less than 400MB. That tells me that the code that was used to scrape here was more than a little broken.
