Pay Attention To The Atmosphere Around Here For The Next 24 Hours...
POLL: Do You Agree With The Proxy / VPN Ban?
 Yes
 No
 Don't Care
 Blank (View Results) 



We've got 90% of VPN's and Proxies banned at this point.

These services were being abused by trolls and shills to attack the posters here.

I've already seen a huge decrease in moderator bans as a result of locking these services out of GLP.

We don't want to be a breeding ground for psycho internet trolls.

This should keep things more real around here.

I'll do another poll in 24 hours to see how things are going.

Shit is going to get crazy on the internet leading up to the next election in the United States..

We need to take some measures to protect the website in this environment.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause anyone.

Thanks for your continued support of GLP!

Understanding does not mean believe,
Of the handful who believe, most may not know what to do,
Those who even know, how many will actually do ?
And the rare ones who have done it.......
Need not listen to you anymore.

Thanks for everything you do to keep this place up and running. The disruptions are meant to drive good people away from the forum. It almost works sometimes, I get discouraged by all the trash postings, so thanks for your hard work to try to keep things somewhat sane.

Much appreciated!
"Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. " (1 Thessalonians 5.18)

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

There will be a slight drop in the average users online count as a result of this.

We're blocking a ton of unauthorized web bots and spiders that were hammering the site from commercial hosting networks.

This is exactly like they're reasoning to ban all guns because few guys went crazy and shot bunch of people, so everyone pays the price...

So guns should be banned afterall?

I agree with it as long as the random IP bans aren't in effect. I never understood why i would get the boot for no particular reason.

But i agree...let's keep this gem shill free if possible. Can we go back to turning off AC comments? Those tend to be UBER shilly.

Ive known a few people who got banned multiple times without even breaking rules, but they were using VPNs. Less people coming to site = less people to ban = less chaos = less bans

Unfortunately not right now.

The bans have to be at the firewall level before you reach GLP for these proxy / vpn providers.

I might try a 50% shields up level system that relies on GLP internal banning next, which will allow you to login and bypass the ban...

Right now most vpn's are being caught at the cloud flare firewall which doesn't give me the option to automatically whitelist a logged in user.

I'm sorry man but we have to shut down this VPN abuse to protect the platform.
