For the most part it has done it's job. Of course i've noticed a few ips that somehow got through (google proxy and Amazon something) but nothing major.
Today i visit my forum and there are like 30-40 guests online. Not 100 percent sure WHERE the increase came from as I haven't done anything and as much as i love my users, THEY haven't done anything(shocking if they had lol)
I noticed a common trend that all of the IPs seem to all come from an Ip address that start with 54 and a host name of .compute-1.amazonaws.com
I am wondering is this something I should be concerned about OR if it is just irrelevant and nothing to worry about. A quick google search really doesn't show me much except for OTHER xenforo forums.
