A note on "downloading linuxforums.org"
It has came to my attention that some people are using "download a website" or "offline website syncronisation" programs designed to "download" all or large parts of websites your hard disk for offline browsing.
These "download a website" programs I am specifically refering to are different from local browser or proxy caching as they often send thousands of automated HTTP requests per minute that are not inline with "normal" web surfing activity.
These programs/scripts cause serious performance issues on my server and sometimes render this site totally un-accessable to other users.
Anyone using such applications against this site are asked to stop immediatly.
As of right now any signs of these type of programs being run against this site will result in your IP address being perminantly firewalled off and an official Denial of Service complaint will be lodged with your ISP.
I would like to clarify that local brower and proxy caching (where you have authorisation to use that proxy server) as a result of normal web surfing are NOT a problem. Automated website download scripts are the issue here - these are totally different.
If any part of this is not clear feel free to reply to this post, PM me, or email me.
