@Mojeek Why did you ban my IP with a -j DROP?

Was it because or the search terms sent by users?

How long will my IP be banned?

@katie Hey Katie, very sorry to hear that; we've been combatting some bots recently so we might have made a mistake there. Would you be okay sending your IP over a more secure channel so we can investigate? If so, which would suit you best? Thanks

From the amount of automated requests I've seen, which were forwarded to Mojeek since it used to be enabled by default - it's not anymore, I'm not entirely sure that banning my IP was a "mistake". It could simply have been something that made perfect sense.

Either Firefox/56.0, yes that specific version, is the worlds most popular browser, or something else is going on. I get why you wouldn't want that flood.
