I think we all are. Mary Anne is working on it, but it is a cumbersome endeavor.

OK...I have blocked 11 IP Addresses. (praying that I haven't blocked any of you.) We'll have to see if this does any good. These addresses all start with 47.254.___.

They are from all over the US, but stem from one ISP: Alibaba. They have been "living" on our forum, seeking ways to insert spam. Some have been reported to "attack" websites while others just want to inundate the victim with spam email. A few I couldn't find any concrete info.

Here's how to watch for them.

Scroll to bottom of main page and click on "Who is on Line"
A new page will open.
Click on "Display guests"
Under each "Guest", you will see an IP address.
If anybody sees an address starting with 47.254 OR 47.88, please let me know.

Now to figure out how to get rid of the semrushbot..who is apparently smarter than websites trying to get rid of them. I think they are harmless except that can use up resources.

Thanks!!

I've got the cPanel open and so far, it looks good...now to tackle Semrush...I am sure I will not get them all...and I feel sure 47.254____ will send more.. :1snowball: .that's why we'll need to watch for new ones.

Mods...Please be on alert. The "crawler" Semrush has returned.

I'll go and block the IP addresses later on this evening.

Thanks.
