I suffered a major server crash last night. It was caused by spam bots (the ones that post viagra spam on the bbs) doing 1000ís of simultaneous searches. They were in fact tiring to post more spam, but crashed the server. I spent 2 hours at the server farm today to bring it back to life.
Because spam bot attacks now happen many times a day, I have no choice but to disable the search function.
At this moment I am ready to troll some spamers at the Farallone islands.
