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?
