Not Solved
Thank you for the suggestions.... blocking countries won't work, it's a very global forum

I'm trying to understand is how It went from a couple thousand over 24 hours (for the last several years) to within a day now going to 90,000 per 24h. How does something like that happen??? Some targeted attack, is it possible???

It's the only thing I can think of, other than updating from 1.8.19 to 1.8.22. what do you think?

Also, there is a 5MB file of known bots that's regularly maintained....would that help? I mean that's huge, how would it even be parsed when people attempt to access the site... Would it slow things down significantly?
