come one man, I see what youre saying but listen
the fact I said closing registration might be a good idea, then 10,000 bots attack with new accounts was actually coincidence.
I actually STILL wonder how the person programmed a bot to register an account, I do not know how it is done, because when connecting on the raw socket, you can only log in, you cant create an account.
I honestly DONT EVEN KNOW how to make a flood that creates accounts!!!!
The bot you banned from my IP was my analytics scraper. I said earlier in this post, I wrote a python script that logs into an account (using the RAW socket network login), then it did a /finger on all the accounts to extract profile information.
But my goal was to extract profiles, if I wanted to make it flood the server, I couldve done that, but I dont want to cause any problems.
I stopped running that python script and havent done it since then!
