Figured I would follow Aslan's advice and post this here :) Cheers!

Any chance the webmaster could put a file /robots.txt at the root with the contents:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /forum

I guess some people might want the forums indexed by the search engines but I get tweaky seeing all the spiders. Might even speed up the forum response time some I suppose. :)

food for thought.

Hey Tai - I had set up our robots.txt to explicitly allow bots onto the forum because I feel the forum is an important part of the jamcruise community and it needs to be accessible thru a wider doorway than the forum button on jamcruise.com.

I know that spiders can make hay out of bandwidth, user counts, sessions, and the like - But I have a special user group that all of the bots are defacto members of, that severely limits their access via a strict set of permissions. As a result, their impact on the performance of the board is negligible.

I know that it's a little unsettling to see those bots in the users lists, but I feel our approach gives us the upper hand.. We get the benefit of the bots without sacrificing performance. I can live with that!

cheers, jon

Maybe a better question is "what isn't she wearing?" :lol:

I suspect jasmine is a troll/spammer. I haven't found any indication she is connected to jam cruise at all?

Are you kidding me? I have been watching this spammer for days. She/it finally went over the line but it was obvious from the first post. :NAUGHTY:

MODERATOR!

Shut that crap down.

I didn't want to be an ass on their first post, not having been around as long as you, eh? :) Denny's post is the bomb too.

When she first joined the forum, all of her posts we're innocuous, but she has since started advertising for work abroad programs. I gave her a warning and if she posts one more ad link, I'll ban her.

I don't follow every thread, so if y'all see stuff like this, just PM me.

I kinda liked her! And then beer thread gave us material to work with!! I thought the beer guy was one of us just starting off with his 1st post :DOH:

August, Ask nicely next time... you think Jon works for us or something? j/k :twisted: :lol:

And Jon..WHY don't you follow every thread??? Don't you have as much time to waste as we do??

That's fine. It's just that it has occurred to me that I don't feel comfortable putting things like my facespace URL on my profile information page with spiders running around here all rampant and stuff. With that being said, yes Denny's porno clown post was possibly the best possible response. :lol:

Moving right along. :WHISTLE:
