comment Servers harrassed by individual on constantly changing IPs
Nice. But how would this be implemented? Since attacks come from 92/8, do you set any post from 92/8 to be visible only in 92/8 ? What about decent people in 92/8 ?

What kind of 'illegal content'? Being obnoxious or inflammatory, while contrary to etiquette and forum goals, is not illegal. It is disturbing to see these two words juxtaposed. Something is only seriously illegal when it breaks an enforced law or actually harms someone in a tangible way ... in which case the authorities or the victims would not respond with inaction.

@PP good point on rewrite, I don't tend to use those and so had forgotten about that. +1. I suspect the virtualhost * + human nature. Still don't know all the answers though.

@PP no, I didn't write /etc/apache2/* myself. And I was hoping rich Uncle would leave me his Lamborghini, but all I got was this fracking server full of pr0n that keeps emailing whitehouse.gov . Actually a co-worker did ask me about seeing this on his server and I was looking for something better to say than "I've seen this too. The server won't explode, so who cares!?" After a few hacks get past, you start to care.

One server this replicates on is a standard VPS at linode. The apache conf is set up for virtual hosting. sites.enabled contains, among other things, a 000-default with a "VirtualHost *:80" declaration. Could that be what lets in requests to google.com ?

Co-workers server. Conf mostly comes from default packaging in Ubuntu. It will be a while if you want a conf file... I'm looking in my servers to see if it replicates...ah found some. Since its debian style the conf is split up -- what pieces do you need?

comment Precautions when using Amazon's S3
have you read aws.amazon.com/s3/#pricing ? $0.15/Gb is $150 for 1000Gb. That can be high compared to the allowances you get with other virtual hosting companies.
