I noticed this happening more-and-more, so my best option was to prevent anonymous users from running filters, which can be very database intensive on my site.

I have never sold any email addresses from this site, and have no intentions of ever doing so.
Hello, Christian! Thank-you for responding to my thread. I appreciate the explanation.

Regarding the bot usage, were you seeing a sudden ramp-up in the past few weeks from a handful of bad actors? Or was this just ambient creep over time that finally hit a breaking point?

Bots have always been a problem, and I have spent many hours through the years trying to mitigate the issue. In recent weeks, it has gotten to a point where I can no longer keep up.
