Over the past few weeks, the number of hits at The Frugalista Files, forum #500426, have been way up. I have noticed that we get hundreds of hits a day from Israel (920 so far today) and Not Applicable (215). We normally get 1-2 hits a day from half a dozen underdeveloped and eastern European countries, but Israel is unusual and 920 hits is unheard of. I am assuming this is some kind of automated software that is trying to track or extract some kind of information from the forum.
Does anyone know anything about this--who they are, what they are trying to accomplish, etc. Is it happening to anyone else? Anyone may read this forum, but only registered users may post, if that makes a difference. (Thus they aren't really annoying us). Any ideas?
