Getting 403 errors?

A new round of forums/blogs have been banned for breaching the AuP

Are you running phpBB and seeing something like this repeated at the top of your site?

PHP Notice: in file /includes/antispam/stopforumspam-ban.php in line

Well, blame your phpBB mod for accessing Stop Forum Spam.  remove the mod, install one that works and then we will remove that ban.

Are you getting 403 errors when accessing the API?  then the code you are using the access the API, was found to breach the AuP, as detailed in the footer

API/data usage
...
This API is NOT to be used as a general software firewall. Checking every incoming connection against the API will be treated as a denial of service attack against us and will result in the immediate blocking of any offending IP numbers

Why?  Well, because when Google spiders you, you query us.  When Google spiders 1000 sites and they all access us, then we get 1000 queries.
