Since jan 16 at 14:59 (currently page 524 of Everything) there has been a regular set of queries from a non-logged in user. Can we have an "Almost Everything" that skips either these automated queries if they've been done in some organised way, or non-logged-in users?

Can somebody review my banning code :) – waffles Feb 6 '11 at 10:37
If you can provide a link to a query that was run during that time that causes you grief, I'm sure they would be happy to look into it and exclude it ;) – jcolebrand Feb 6 '11 at 20:08
@drachenstern I don't know how much of your comment was covered by the smilie, but it is a new query each time, and there's 2-4 a minute. – Mark Hurd Feb 7 '11 at 0:02
My smily was for the diamond mods. My question to you is do you know the name of any of the queries that are running 2-4 a minute at a time? – jcolebrand Feb 7 '11 at 0:07
@drachenstern Sam has fixed the problem, but you could see the problem easily looking at the Everything tab. And, no, every query was a new unnamed one. – Mark Hurd Feb 7 '11 at 2:56

Fine then, spoil all the fun for anonymous, see if I care.

20,000 queries deleted, another ip is in the blacklist. ALL anonymous users must solve a Captcha before running any queries.

Thank you, sir
