Blocking Facebook




I blocked Facebook, this morning.
I mean, it's not 100% blocked, but it is now just being fed a single line of "Socoder : A forum for game developers" and no more than that.
Apologies to anyone who wants to easily post a link to SoCoder and will no longer get a nice little highlight on their Facebook posts, but .. honestly, this shit just isn't on.
786 requests in the space of 3 minutes is NOT a normal spider bot.. And Facebook doing this.. You just know it's for their AI.
Either that or someone is somehow using Facebook to try to DDOS us.. *shrugs*

And this is about the 3rd day of it. I'm pretty damn sure that people aren't posting hundreds and thousands of links to SoCoder over on Facebook, so quite what's been happening over the past few days, I'm just not sure.

What I don't understand is why my name appears at the bottom, does this mean that somebody's using my FB profile?

Time for a password update I reckon.

No that's just it scanning your blog! Nothing to worry about!
Most things on this site are numerical, but your blog/profile page have your username attached to make it easier to get to them without having to remember everyone's User Number!

It was still best for me to change my Facebook password though mate, just in case some prat uses it to spam this site and potentially loads of other sites too.
