    Angry Anti-Scraping Software Installed

    We have recently installed anti-scraping software on the GPWA website. We do not believe this new software should introduce any problems for our regular forum users, but if you do encounter any new issues using the forum, please let us know so we can investigate.

    We installed this new software because GPWA member Muppet reported our site was being scraped in the following forum post: A site is live scraping the entire gpwa site (Thank you Muppet).

    In response we have installed a product called ZB Block, which is able to thwart certain site scrapers from continuing to steal site content.

    Hey Michael
    Just a heads up that this thread title forced your newsletter to be quarantined within our company email.
    Hopefully we are the only ones.

    The issue I'm having now is it will not keep me logged in. I'm having to constantly log in just about everytime I go to a new page. Not that big of a deal to have to do that.

    I've had this problem since the forum had that virus. Anytime I log in, I have to log in a second time. Rick made a few suggestions (tried them), but the problem is not on my end.

    I'm under a proxy right now. Hey, I'm not the scraper!
