Was checking the active users area at the bottom of the forum today about 1 pm Eastern and saw 29 guests listed as being on--as I've never seen anywhere near that number of people on at once before, I was wondering if it represented someone trying to brute force attack them, though the activities were all different--looking at different areas of the forum, and at least one was looking at Rome's profile.

Rome recently made a comment on apollo's blog, and it was likely just OM stalkers wondering who Rome was and invading our forums.

Our host is very slow lately guys, not exactly sure why.  It also was down like 8 hours a few days ago.  But it's not us (=

We've had the massive number of guests thing happen quite a few times in the past. I'm relatively certain that we determined on a couple of those that they were bots trying to find a way in to spam, but since we've turned on most of our security settings (No guests can post, accounts must be admin approved, etc.), they're never actually able to post.
