The last POST request from your IP was...

Just tossing this out there as I know there's no real solution besides lowering the number of seconds in the submissions  from IP setting ( Admin Centre/Anti-Spam) but somebody else may also have a user who triggers this.

My submissions from IP is currently set at 60 seconds and I have one person who manages to trigger it quite consistently without even trying to post a message. 'cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?board=&action=recent' is a POST request. So, in theory, someone going though various boards at breakneck speed may well trigger the submissions from IP ban if it's set too high.

(BTW, this is the same person who managed to prove that a ban notice trumps a spoof notice.)  Huh

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

I always think of that setting to be more do do with server load than anti-spam myself. I can't say that I've ever bothered changing it from the default 5 seconds.

In my opinion 60 seconds is way too high anyway, so yeah, I'd change it to something 'reasonable'. Smiley

What sort of solution were you thinking of?

Eek! I've just got another speed posting warning while posting this. Cheesy

I cut the submission from IP number down to 30 seconds and I'll see how that goes for this one user. I don't think there's a real solution besides tweaking the POST and speed ban settings.

I just wanted something out there in case someone else has an issue like this. (And it really is just one person on my boards. If her health wasn't so poor I'd rent her out to see if she could trigger weird errors on other people's forums.  Seriously - the one time in a month the mail server is down, she's the one sending a PM - from her smartphone in a Starbuck's on the banned list Roll Eyes )
