I enabled a new security feature for the site yesterday afternoon. It's a Web Application Firewall (WAF) service from StackPath, our CDN provider. The WAF learns our typical traffic patterns and can be configured to block certain types of traffic. At it learns I'm tuning the rules and policies. So if you get a message like this we're aware and are monitoring things.

If you browse this site from your own private VPN service hosted through an ISP or cloud hosting provider you are likely to get blocked with the current rules. We're wasting a huge amount of bandwidth to people crawling/scraping content using providers like Amazon Web Services. So we're blocking that kind of traffic for now. That may change in the future.
If you get the captcha screen from StackPath it's because you're using the site in a way that doesn't match our 'normal' traffic patterns. Fill out the form to let the WAF know you're a real human and it will learn.

yesterday (I think immediately after activation), I was blocked (but that issue has been solved today).
My non-usual way of using the site (which I donít think is non-usual anyway) is opening a smartbuydisc.ru, and then opening the threads iím interested in in separate tabs. Which to the webserver probably looks suspicious, since Iím opening ~10 pages in quick succession. But nothing more than that.

If you happen to be in China, Ukraine, Russia, Romania, Pakistan, Banglasdesh or Malaysia you're likely going to be blocked as well.

Thanks for letting us know, Drew. I haven't been blocked, but the "type in the letters you see in this box" page did come up on me a couple times since yesterday.

I was blocked from the smartbuydisc.ru yesterday for some hours , but got no previous warning .
I also did not have the possibility to fill out the form to prove that I´m human .
Maybe unusual : I go to my list of subscribed topics and open many of them one after another and then post in some of them . I have similar tactics for the subforums etc ...
I think many users have different ways of finding the threads relevant to them that may not be the same as the most linear ones .

I've been repeatedly blocked , as it appears ,when it happened I wasn't using anything than a direct connection to the site , no VPN , what triggers such response sometimes after a long time of regular use is the button "back" or the link "All smartbuydisc.rus" or the button "refresh" . no form ever appeared
Sometimes I leave a window on the smartbuydisc.ru while surfing elsewhere and then get back to ADT and refresh , could this be something seen as wrong?
Though I do this often but Stackpath only blocked me twice after that
I can't see anything else that could be a problem

I've been blocked several times. Usually it clears after a minute or two, but tonight it lasted for over an hour and perhaps longer.
I'm in the US so not my location nor am I using a VPN/proxy. It seems to happen if I open more than a few threads in a short period of time, a lot like what Airtight_fanatic mentioned.
Also never seen any kind of captcha option either when it happens.

I turned off one of the anti-scraper policy rules. Opening a bunch of tabs simultaneously might look like a content scraper's activity. I'll keep an eye on it.

A reply of mine was blocked for typing a phrase in speech marks but when I removed them, my reply went through.

I was blocked for trying to post with single and double quotes.
I've been Captcha challenged for opening multiple tabs.

Currently, I'm not having an issue with this, however, I have been getting the "504 Gateway Time-out" page repeatedly over the past two days.

EDIT: Disregard. I created a separate thread for the issue.

or is it a "typing a phrase in speech marks"
I suppose I don't know what marks you're using. What keyboard type are you using? US? non-US?

Thanks Drew. That seemed to work. I could use speech marks without having to embed them in a

tag and the post was accepted.

^ I just received the error message not 20 seconds ago. I removed the quotation marks and all is fine.

I realize some members might be getting blocked this morning. I had to tighten up our rules. We're under active attack this morning by a bot army. I banned a user that was complaining about free speech and the (lack of) democracy on this site and the attack started an hour later.

Hey Drew,

When I type adultdvdtalk.com in to my address bar it gives me the following message:

I haven't been on the site for the last three days because of this! Finally, I remembered to type the direct address to the smartbuydisc.ru - smartbuydisc.ru - and it worked.

So something is still going on FYI.

You should be redirected to / if you just enter adultdvdtalk.com in your browser's address bar. What browser are you using?

This is fixed. Thanks for letting me know.

It wasn't the WAF causing the problem. It was a DNS error. After the bot army fiasco the other day I moved some other pieces of ADT behind the proxy server and screwed up some of the settings.

I've been starting to see the StackPath screen again (from about yesterday), but it just says to key in letters & numbers to confirm I'm not a robot.

For anyone that's getting blocked, you can email me at and include the reference ID on the "You've been Blocked" Stackpath page. That will allow me to lookup what WAF rule you triggered and see if there's anything I can do to tune the rule a bit. I enabled a half-dozen new rules recently and the WAF is establishing a new baseline for what types of user behavior patters are normal and which appear to be malicious or automated.

If you get the Captcha challenge screen it's a little hard to see the area you enter the text on some screens. It looks like this:

stackpath-are-you-human.png

Enter the bold characters in the text field and you shouldn't see the challenge again for a while.

I appreciate that you want to stop spammers and the like, Drew, but getting repeatedly challenged when I move around the smartbuydisc.rus becomes rather annoying. Is it not possible to stay in Stackpath's "good graces"?

It's going to need to be like this until the weekend. Sorry, it's a pain in the ass but it's preventing much larger, very real problems at the moment.

+1

If it's for the greater good then so be it, but I get it nearly everytime I open a tab or refresh the 'my topic' page after being AFK.

If you get the challenge you can email me the reference number on the "You have been blocked" page and I can investigate which rule blocked you. drew adt

If your browser doesn't accept session cookies, or if you're using a VPN/Proxy/Anonymizer service then you're going to have a very difficult time using ADT.

The StackPath WAF has thwarted 2 very determined attacks recently. A well-known abusive user came back and made all kinds of threats so I had to ratchet up the rules to prevent a lot of stuff that we were otherwise allowing previously.

^That's good news.

I have relaxed some of the rules I enabled a week ago . We'll see if that was a bad idea soon enough I suppose.
