Do to abuse I was forced to ban a user on address: evrtwa1-ar3-4-65-144-052.evrtwa1.dsl-verizon.net to the main web pages.

This user used a offline downloader to try and grab all of the files on Furtopia. What is bad is this downloader trys to fool the web server into giving most to all the bandwidth to this user by opening massive a # of connections forcing other users to wait who are just browsing.  This inconciderate action will not be tolerated.

This user account and ISP will be banned for 48 hours and maybe longer.  This does not affect CGI.  If any other users are affected by this BAN please let me know.

*ears perk up at the mention of porn* Tell me more.
Cats who say "Meow" may not be asking for Meow Mix. They may be asking you to throw it away.

That won't get you banned Cesarin.  We are very liberal and try to help everyone we can.  Wether this person knew what they were doing or not (some don't) the "offline downloader" they had set to download ALL of Furtopia.  It's not something we generaly like but we don't prohibit.  However this program was (I'm sure as a feature to the user) trying to take ALL the web servers bandwidth with large multi-connections making connections slow for everybody else.  This is inconsiderate of other users who all share this service.  So I banned his connection for 48 hours.

If he/she who was banned contacts me I will explain what is wrong and if they correct the problem I will remove the ban sooner.  This is a shared service so sometimes we have to jump in when someone starts taking advantage to an extreme.
