why not switch to a dynamic forum like vBulletin
(Since Brett is fast asleep at this moment) The issue is system-load, as I understand it - exactly the same issue as this one (the bots). Brett has a lean, mean Forum that he has written himself in Perl, and which handles a staggeringly high number of postings on a single RH-box. He prides himself on the fact that just this single box is able to handle what other fora need a server-farm for.
