Our main stats web server is being hit with a denial of service-like attack from several machines. They are accessing cgi-bin urls multiple times per second per IP, which is slowing down the web server for everyone else. We have banned some IPs, but we will look back and ban some more as needed.
Please stop running scripts — it ruins the stats for everyone else.
UPDATE: It seems like the DOS-ers are often going to the fahproject page, so we have deactivated it for now to keep the rest of the site up. This seems to have helped a lot, coupled with some IP banning.
