I know that various meme sites have been getting banned for accessing things such as profiles too much from the same ip etc.

Is this automatic or manual? If its automatic what are the banning criteria / thresholds? Does it count for user pics as they are external to the core lj site?

It just occurred to me as a webmail service I run with various lj users loads userpics via the site ip (to stop cookies, redirects etc from naughty email messages). Could something like this trigger a ban as all the pics appear to be read to the same ip?
