If you look at the bottom of these pages you'll see a bold number of "Most users ever online", with some astronomical number which is 518 as I write this.

These aren't real users, they're spambots trying to post ads for wondrous Indonesian tennis shoes and Rolex knock-offs from Siberia.

I don't think they can get through our super-secure bot-defeating we-know-better-than-you-spammers security code, but just in case, we've added a layer of network filtering to prevent them reaching us in the first place.

Well - the thing is - of course - they're not all spambots. Some of them are you.

So here's the deal. If you find yourself unable to reach the SmartMonsters web site, with a rude message about being blacklisted for being a bad, bad, bad person: immediately email support@smartmonsters.com, and we'll fix it.

Thanks!
