Welcome to WebmasterWorld, coaster01.
C'mon now, you must contribute! You have knowledge and experience that might benefit others! Why keep it all to yourself? :)

Welcome, Coaster. If you're like the rest of us you'll be posting up a storm in no time. It just takes a little while to get comfortable with the realization you've got lots to contribute.

welcome to WebmasterWorld, coaster01!
I know a couple of frequent contributors here are world-reknowned experts in exactly the kind of bot-attack scenario you describe. The best way to get them to spill their brains is to post thoughtful, specific questions, and participate in 2-way discussion rather than just lurking.

I'm grateful for the warm welcome and the kind and encouraging words. Thing is, I know close to nil about administering a website. And as far as posting up a storm, one reason I'm hoping to get my own site going is that I'm getting kind of tired of posting, with close to 30k posts among various forums. But that's a good point -- to get someone else talking you need to have a two-way discussion.
What software does this forum run on? It's not something that I recognize.
