dstiles: Over 60% of web traffic in 2013 was bots, and a large proportion of that 60% was miscreant. As an avid log-watcher I'm sure you've noticed :)
Only 40% is human traffic, and not all the 40% is virtuous.
The see-saw has tipped.
The gyro toppled.
Nerd-dom and geek-dom beckon.
So those of us who do not wish to become either, eagerly await a better filtering solution than any of us has so far employed.
Meanwhile, keep bailing folks!
A Merry Christmas to all our readers.
